    Ok some photos for you guys.

    I honestly don't know exactly what you're seeing as it may depend on monitors etc, on my Dell monitor, the wood looks much darker than it is, almost a red colour in a few of the shots, but the true colour is s actually a light oak finish, which is more clear in some of the images.

    Hope this helps, very happy, looks great and I was able to match the bezel width etc to my book shelves and so on on the other side of the room.

    It looks amazing in situ Simon! Your camera makes it look much more orange in the wide angle shots than it obviously is in the close up.

    I'm going to be getting an order in with Stuart in the new year. :thumbsup:

    Me too Jimbo, just need to get round to sorting out a design and putting it onto paper.

    It really does look good , but far more so in reality than images, you'll love yours in the flesh.

    I've now put my initial design into Stuart @ Stump, hopefully sort out a price and any small changes in the next few weeks with a view to taking delivery in late Jan/early Feb 2012. Will update the thread with pics as & when.

    Hi everyone,

    I too have been using Stump Furniture. I emailed my design in late Nov / early Dec and the unit was delivered a few days before Xmas, so very happy with the timing :)

    I had had a very hard time finding a suitable unit as I was getting the ATC C3C centre, which is extremely large. Very few 'off the shelf' units could fit this centre at all, and all I could find cost upwards of £2k. This was a significant saving, and IMO the custom fit not only looks much better but is great practically, for hiding wires etc. (I still need to tuck my aerial lead away ;) )

    Anyway, photos:

    It's a pre / pro rather than a receiver (PR-SC886) so has no power amplification in it, that's done by the Primare A30.5 in the centre. As it happens, it gets slightly warm to the touch (similar to the Primare) but there is a 1cm gap above and to the sides (more to the left, due to the design), and it is open front and back. It gives me no concerns :)

    Well my Stump AV unit arrived today, quite chuffed with it and would recommend anyone else looking for a custom AV unit to give Stuart a call.

    Here is a pic of mine before it left Stump's place:

    Do you reckon if I sent them a photo of my new kitchen cupboards they'd be able to match it from that?

    I'm not after anything special but I would like it to be 55cm high minimum and there's not a lot available out there in maple.

    Stuart is very accommodating and adaptable so probably, yes. I'd get in touch with him and see.

    Is that the actual finish or was there still varnish/wax to be applied? Looks pretty interesting as is...

    These units look pretty good. I went to the Bristol show looking at furniture, but wasn't that impressed. Strict shelf height, no cable management, etc.

    Will give these guys a shout.

    I think you'll probably find that these are a little out of date as they weren't VAT registered when these were put up so you'd need to add around 20%. :)

    Yes they do. Delivery was by a guy with a van who was making various drops around the country. Delivery charge obviously may vary.

    What have you gone for? I was looking at getting something a few months ago but a new house purchase meant putting things on hold as I didn't want to get something that might not have been suitable in the new place.

    Will definitely be speaking to Stuart again once we're moved in!

    Haven't got any pictures to hand, but its reclaimed wood with a clear wax finish - very similar in design to SimonH's and OObsters pictured earlier in this thread with 3 shelves across and 2 shelves high. The centre shelves on mine are narrower than the others as I only need to fit my DAC and Squeezebox Touch in them.

    Nice thing about Stuart is he'll make whatever you need to your design with some very helpful suggestions thrown in along the way...

    I was looking for a suitable media unit for ages and never found anything suitable. After searching this forum I found this thread about Stump Furniture and gave them a call. I discussed the options with Stuart at Stump and sent off my design for a unit made from oak with a dark stain to match the rest of my living room. 6 weeks later and the unit is delivered and I love it. Here are a couple of pictures to show it off, not the best pics at the moment because I am yet to see it in real daylight at this time of year ;-) EDIT I have changed the photos now the lighting is natural in the daytime.
