Default AV Cabinet

This is an AV cabinet I did for some friends of mine a few years ago. Sorry, some of these aren't the best pictures. It's a stained alder project.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Looks like a built-in missing a wall. Seriously nice cabinet. I'm contemplating building a new A/V cabinet and most plans I've looked at really don't address a location for the turntable. Of course I can alter for that but it is surprising. Curious if this has some kind of roller system to make easier to move? That was another issue when I built my first one out of oak and plywood. The weight is massive and getting to the back for cables and such is a bit hard now that it sits on carpet and not hardwood floor.

I designed and built from my own plans so I put in whatever is required by the client. I guess you are asking if the whole cabinet comes out of the niche that would be no it's permanent to the home. I make it so I can do all the wiring from the front.

Thanks David. So any idea how cable management is done? Are there channels to run the cables?

The tv panel is 8" or something from the back wall and the tops of my base cabinets are stretchers not full tops. I drilled a hole in the middle of the tv mount and dropped the HDMI cable into the base. From there I notch shelves put holes in the bulkheads of the base cabinets to get wires wherever they need to go.
