    I've been building one this past week...sanding/finishing today.

    What do you need to know? Best advice I can give you is to measure, measure, and just when you think you know how big it needs to be, measure again...and then add an inch over what you think, if you have the room.

    I've never built one before but I thought these would be some good starter ideas for you.

    Re: anyone wanna help me design a new entertainment center?

    Depends on how much stuff you anticipate needing space for.

    An integrated unit that has two shelving racks on either side of the TV and holds it in as well would look sweet, but take up a huge amount of room and be a big undertaking...not really a project to attempt if you've never done this kind of thing before.

    Honestly, I'd just build a cabinet for around the TV, and use the stand you already have for it.

    I'll post pictures of my setup sometime, even though it's for my audio seperates system it may give you some construction ideas.

    I've totally given up on trying to have a cabinet that will hold my equipment AND all my media. I have 500 CDs and 200 DVDs and I had to break down and buy some shelving just for media.

    Just a thought but maybe you shouldn't worry about media storage when you design your center. Eventually you'll outgrow it and have to buy a seperate media rack anyway.

    What about a tv stand with shelving options for your components? Would take up less space and be an easy build.

    Entertainment center design idea.

    Box with pole ------------------ just make the box big enough so the chick
    dancing on it doesn't fall on her azz ..

    That would be an real entertainment center. Just stock up on dollar bills for tips.

    projector FTW, then no worries about an entertainment center, just get a cheap glass-doored cabinet for your receiver and dvd player. Or if you wanna go all-out, sony makes an all-in-one media center pc/ dvd changer/ receiver. THAT would be nuts.

    Actually, if you want to go all out, the better way to go would be seperates

    And I agree with Thy about the entertainment center. Maybe she'd even cook me lawfles
