Thanks Lyle! For those interested in seeing the rest of the pictures, Lyle did host them for me.

I'm still not allowed to post links, but you can get to the directory by clicking the link Lyle posted and then just cutting off the "/im000493.jpg" from the URL.

The first picture is a before shot. I measured the
height of the wall and the TV and decided how high to
build the stand. This picture just shows the TV
sitting on the rough stand.

The second picture shows the big hole in the wall.
I've attached the stand and started to frame out the
shelves on the side.

The third picture shows the progress as I added the
drywall, and the fourth picture shows the TV and
equipment in place. The last one shows it with some
stuff on the shelves, and a final piece of trim added
around the stand. My wife moved all that stuff off
the shelves and put more "decorative" stuff there
after I took these pictures, but I think it looks good
either way.

Thanks again Lyle!

robert that looks nice but.

how do you get behind the tv and shelves?
or do you not have to?

plus are you concerned about the tv getting no air circulation around it?
or is that not really an issue?

The space behind the TV is actually attic space, there's a little access door on the other side of the room. As far as air circulation, there's several inches of space around the bottom of the TV (where the TV is vented) and I've reached back there after having the TV on for several hours and it's barely warm.

It works great.
