“I recently moved into a new efficiency apartment and I though I would try to contain the mess of wires that go along with an entertainment center. I noticed this hacked TV stand so I did the same thing but added on a little. I ended up adding a sheet of 1/4″ plywood onto the back so I could easily mount computer case fans that I purchased from Monoprice to remove heat from the enclosure. As you can see I have a cable modem, wireless router, wireless network attached drives, receiver, and all the power supplies internally. I know it is messy inside but that is exactly why I made this so the mess is contained internally.”
