My Planned Unit For My Gear

Hi,

No, I don't have a lot of time on my hands. Let's just say things are a little quiet today.

The wall where I'll be putting my TV & AV gear is 2510mm wide. I'm going to make a rack / unit to fill the whole width - the space either side of a smaller unit would just be dead space where dust and toys would gather.

I'm going to use the same 9" x 3" timber I used to make my CD / DVD shelves a few years ago - I roughed them up with a convex rasp and stained them a nice old light oak colour - they're kind of styled like those "weathered beach-wood" fireplaces you can get, and we love them, so it'll be nice to have a matching AV unit.

I plan to use smoked glass doors, hinged at the bottom, with small locking barrel latches at the top, to keep Scooby Doo & crayons out of expensive and important openings.

The shelves will basically be open - there'll be just enough wood around the edges to support the components.

I'm leaving as much space around the components as I can while still sticking with the design I want.

I'm posting these diagrams to guage opinions on whether heat might be a problem if the components are cooped up behind glass doors.

At this time, the components I plan to get are Denon AVR-1909, Panasonic DMR-EX88, PS3 (hopefully with PlayTV, if Sony sort it so I can receive Irish DTT via MPEG4), XBox 360 Elite and something like a Foxsat HDR.

Seeing you will be working out all the cuts and timber sizes it'll be just as easy to make 2, one for me:~).
Nice design.

Thanks. My production line will be busy :rolleyes: - a neighbour has hinted that they'd love shelves like ours.

Would this much space be better?

Would I need to leave the glass doors opened while the components are in use?

Thanks,

Mark
