Chunky Media cabinet

Submitted by redhead_61 on Tue, 12/05/2017 - 22:43

This was loosely based on one of the media cabinets on this site.  I built it to fit this spot exactly and used many of the same design elements as in the Leighton media Suite I built several years ago.  One thing I want to mention I did with this design that is a FABULOUS idea in all media units.  Inset the back of your lower section.  I hate not being able to run the top of my "counter" flush with the wall because the back of my unit or bookcase is running into all the plugs in the outlet.  I left a little larger of an overhang than I normally wood to clear the baseboards and I inset the backing of this peice about and inch inward to leave lots of room for all the chords to just hang there but be hidden.  They are much more accessible and now the top of my unit is flush to the wall.
