It's funny that you guys started this thread - I just yesterday started my own little cabinet. I get really sick of all those open air stands and my wife hates them! I figure if she's kind enough to let me get whatever big screen I want, then I can put in some labor and time and come up with a decent piece of furniture. I don't understand what people are doing with these table top tv's and center channel speakers. I know some folks are building shelves above their tv's but I really don't think I would like this. I want to have my cake and eat it to - I want a large capable center channel and enough room for all my components. Even the salamander triples wouldn't house all my stuff. And believe me, I'm not about to buy bose just for the size :0
Anyway, I'll try to post some pics by tonight so you guys can let me know what you think. Unfortunately, due to some time constraints I won't be able to get as detailed as I would like with this project, but I'm confident I can come up with something better than majority of what's out there. Nice thread, btw, I get kind of tired of the "which tv is better?" topics and this is a very constructive way to share ideas.
Looks like you have a great start, btw, Ironhorse - and some mad skills!
