wooden av rack

I need a wooden av rack (pref. in oak) - it needs to hav a centre shelf for my centre speaker and have shelves for av equipment. It also needs to have doors and be able to support a 42" lcd screen on top. I've looked on ebay, ikea etc but cannot find anything suitable - any ideas for something that won't cost the earth?

Have you not got a mate who is a joiner, maybe he could build you a custom one, why not make enquirees, shouldnt cost that much.

Ive been looking at these cabinets also like the ones michael.redfern suggested, specifally the blok 3000.

The problem I have with them is the centre part isnt very wide. What sort of speaker is meant to go in there exactly?

I use a Linn Centrik I (not the more recent 4 driver flat wide version, but the older half-a-keilidh version) and it would basically fill the speaker space of the Arca with a cm or so around, when stood on its end.

Bear in mind that this is acceptable - to stand the centre speaker on one end, rather than on the long side. Just make sure it's firm with blu-tac under it or something.

Well, in my case, my centre speaker (Linn Centrik I) is single unit of one of my mains (Linn Keilidh) turned on it's side. So I can't see that turning it back upright would affect it. Maybe I'm wrong.
