    Ikea should have something suitable - I use the Benno stand which has sliding glass doors but many users here like the Oppli. :)

    Thanks for the ikea tips.

    No offense, but I don't like the look of them. The US site offering IMO look much nicer..

    I'm surprised there are not more companies offering plasma centres of this sort..

    Any other pointers greatfully received.

    That's more like it ;)

    That looks to be about the dimensions I'd like.
    May I ask where did you buy or was it made?
    Is that 42" btw?

    I'd consider something like that, though wife is keener on more high-tech glass and metal I think, matching cd/hifi rack, but I think asthetically the size/dimensions and all important viewing height are much better with your type of setup.

    :D

    Well, I might sound like I'm being smart after the fact, but I had my suspicions it was a modified piece of furniture, becuase the best I've seen elsewhere was something in Oak which was also a bookshelf, though he/they had just layed on side and knocked out a few shelfs + added feet.

    Excellent job you've done, I'm DIY-phobic, so I'm in a cold sweat now thinking about it - I have to buy something that involves no more than assembly.

    Anymore offering anyone? :confused:
    Me thinnks there is a market out there for an industrius stand/furniture maker! Admittedly a lot of people wall mount, but there also plenty who've opted for CAB or PED versions so there's is a demand for nice non-wall mounted options and surely. It seems most of the usual manufacturers do not build low enough units.

    Ho-hum, the search continues..

    There are a couple of places you can try which are listed below. I went through the same process that you are currently going through but I couldn't find anything in the right size or price range. Hence the DIY job. If your interested in doing the DIY job yourself there are only two saw cuts the rest is just used in a differrent way than Ikea planned.

    I deleted most of my previous links but if i come across anymore I'll let you know.

    Thanks for that Ian.

    There's a least one possibility in there.
