    Finally got the DVD cabinet off the wall and moved all the DVDs to the closet. Ditched the A/V cabinet and make-shift TV stand. Just about finished up the new Flexy below. Little more touch up still to do.

    Equipment is tough to see.
    Top Right: Marantz SR5000
    Bottome Right: Monster HTS 2500
    Top Left: JVC-S60/Sony VCR
    Bottom Left: Wilson and a Cigar humidifier
    I have 6 legs, all are 3/4" all-thread and I used 3/4" MDF for the shelves.

    Very nice Ron. [​IMG] Nice finish on the wood. Looks like it should have no problem with that rptv.
    I also like Wilson. Nice touch. [​IMG]

    Looks good! Did your paint the all-thread or is that a covering over the threads in between the shelves?

    Thanks guys.
    Jeff, I used that split-tubing plastic stuff used to bundle wires together. Works great.

    I believe they call the wire wrap stuff: loom or looming.

    Very nice Ron, especially the humidor on the bottom. I have my new stand almost completed, just have to sand, stain, and finish coat. I took a woodworking class at the local high school sponsored by community college. Best $64.00 bucks I've spent. For all of you DIYers who don't have that many tools try taking a class. The access to the tools and the instructors knowledge is well worth the fee you will spend.
    But since I have my own miter saw, table router and drill press as soon as we get our house I'm building a shop in the garage. I can't stop building [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I'll post some pics of my new rack soon.

    Cam, I know it is well over 1,000 lbs. Not sure of the exact number, but no need to worry. The MDF would give way before the all-thread did. With the six legs, it's safe. I've got around 275 lbs total on her now. Spread that out over the six and the average weight per leg is under 46 lbs.
    Can't wait to see the pics Mark. I'd love to have a wood shop, but with only a two car garage and two cars, I have no room. I did build a free standing tool shed out back (7'x12') which is decent size, but I need a bigger one.

    Nice work Ron. Very similar to my double-wide flexy TV stand (but its woodgrain instead of black). Took mine apart this week and added another coat of stain plus 3 coats of Polyurethane (sp?). That poly stuff really makes a difference - slick, shiny and durable.

    Very nice Ron,

    Is the 3/4" all-thread something you can pick up at Home Depot?

    After seeing a couple of these designs, I was thinking of a wall-mount (two-shelf system) with support wires as a design because I have no room on either side of my system for a stereo rack, but I like this. Simple, affordable, effective and stylish.

    Don't anyone take a woodworking course without warning. I took two, and own a table saw, thickness planer, jointer and some other stuff with a small 8' x 10' shed.

    I got my all-thread at www.barnhillbolt.com. Mine was $5.42 for a 48" length of 3/4" all-thread.
    Ron, what kind of finish is that (hard to tell). I'm having difficulty deciding what to do with mine. 've thought about veneer. Or maybe just finishing the MDF. Trouble is, I don't know what will look good on the bare MDF.
    Anybody have any suggestions?
    Joel

    My wife bought a box of Ashtons for me a couple weeks ago. I've been in cigar heaven ever since. One of my favorite smokes!
