Our old TV died a few months ago and we recently upgraded to flat screen. We had been talking about building a TV cabinet/bookcase previously and now that our TV wasn't a heavy 30 tube TV we could proceed with the plan.
I have started designing the TV cabinet, it will have book cases on both sides of the main section. I am looking forward to this project. It will be built from oak to match the stair rail and the kitchen cabinets.
Here is a quick 3D sketch.
