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.

That’s a great looking A/V cabinet David. One of my favourite subjects

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.

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.

Very nice entertainment cabinet. Looks like your friend needs a bigger TV to fill the space.

Nice. I like they way that you incorporated the extra depth for the component area.

It was built to house a bigger tv when they were ready.
That’s always been my concern. The tv dies and the next one you’d prefer won’t fit .
I’m sure they’ve taken that into consideration though
