    So this week starts an exciting project where I will begin building a wall-hung drawer for beneath the wall-hung TV in Bubinga rosewood with internal drawer in Hard Maple. Intact I just ordered a very large router table for the specific joinery I want to use on it.

    However I'm left with a couple of issues....what do you guys do to mount a wireless router in a way that keeps it out of sight?

    The group of wires will disappear with a setback receptical installed behind the TV with s built in surge protector.

    Why do you have to mount the wireless router? I have my router on the opposite side of the room from my TV.

    I may just rewire the situation so that I can hide it in the back of the closet or something in that regard.

    I stick it in a media cabinet with access holes in the rear.

    I'd like to see pics of this set up. I'm in the process of buying a new TV for the basement and will have to rewire the room to clean it up to a better standard than it's current situation.

    What TV did you buy and why? I've tried to search for a thread here but have had limited luck. Did you replace your amp/reciever? Blu-ray?

    I'm looking at getting a Panasonic 60" GT series plasma as it seems to get very good reviews over the lower models and the price jump to the VT isn't worth the return from what I am going to use it on. It also seems that I will need to replace my older Pioneer Elite series Amp and DvD for more modern stuff.

    What did you do about wiring? I've read mixed reviews on getting "top shelf" stuff vs plain jane and again the price vs return would indicate that normal stuff will do just fine.

    Unless you are running the wiring long distance or through/near something that would likely cause interference, regular monoprice or bluejean cabling is fine.

    Panny plasma is a very good choice no matter the question.

    Canuck, I have not completed the re-wiring just yet, but I have done a little. I found a surge protector with built in wiring harness and cover, mounted it under the console and ran the majority of the wiring though that.

    The tv and Apple TV wiring is going to be relocated to behind the TV, I plan to add an additional outlet behind the TV tht is set back into the wall.

    I don't have big stereo equipment for this TV just yet, we already have one of those sit-ups in another room. If I do decide to add better speakers I'm looking at Libratone or possibly bang and Olfsen.

    What I actually meant was that my cabinet is finished and hung on the wall. I made it in Bubinga and gaboon ebony wood.

    I'm a sad excuse for an audiophile, but there is room for improvement after I finish furnishing this place.

    That object on the far wall is being replaced by an LC1 in cowhide which is arriving shortly, got a rug on the way. I've built a table and that is in the process of being lacquered, so that will be there in a month.

    I really have minimal room for speakers, but might try and find some that will look nice free standing in the room.

    I would be very pleased with myself if I built something that looked as good as that. Nice job.

    I know you guys asked for this pic a while ago, sorry for the lapse in time. Those holes in the drywall are a bit unsightly, but this place needs a paint job, so spackle is next on the list along with painting (hopefully a different color if I can get it approved by the mrs.).

    The wires are going to disappear, since I found an outlet that I can put behind the TV, and the box is going to find a new home in the closet soon.

    Got my other chair...and a new table is on the way. One of my humidors is going to live on the table, both will be Macassar ebony (table and humidor) and polished lacquer.

    Moved the router and put a recessed outlet behind the TV with a built in surge protector and room to run cables (for future use with stereo equipment). No more visible wires, no more visible surge protector and no more router.

    If anyon wants to see a pic, I'll take one.

    Impossible to get the color right with this camera phone, but the yellow is very pale, and now in need of touch up. I'm considering painting a light grey. Which will look better with all of the exotic hardwoods I like to use.

    The side table for this room is nearly completion at the finisher, it is Macassar ebony, shortly after that is complete I will have a Macassar ebony humidor complete for the room as well. Thought it is looking more and more like I will be finding a new home for that humidor and the table will be used for a tea set.
