We've just redecorated the lounge and I need to come up with a new way
to mount the A/V units (amp, freeview, freesat, blu-ray) and to house
(and hide) the associated junk (wifi link, ethernet switch, a couple of
wallwarts, slave power widget and an extension lead). Previously I
mounted some glass shelves between wooden end cheeks but I want
something a bit more stylish now.
Ideas so far include:
- re-using the glass shelves and turning-up some s/s or acrylic
cylinders to act as spacers for a stack (but I can't come-up with a
smart enough base)
- devise something to act as cantilever supports for each of the
existing glass shelves and mount then to the wall individually
- make a bit of furniture (but I would prefer a minimalist look)
What have other people made or bought to solve the problem?
One thing I would do is to build a false 'wall' behind your entire unit.
Which allows cable to be routed behind it. Decent ply is best as it will
take near any load - like shelf brackets, etc. And if you have things like
vinyl. the loads can be very high.
As regards spacers, I had some glass ones made up slightly smaller than
the glass shelves so they 'float' between them. I'll post a link to some
*Is there another word for synonym?

Thanks, that looks good but I only need to support the A/V boxes so am
homing-in on something more minimalist. Perhaps something DIY'd and
based on this sort of thing www.ebay.co.uk/itm/110785023657 with cable
management, shelf edge lighting and an opaque black glass, open-backed,
box for the wifi, enet switch and other bits'n'pieces.
