Well, as usual I can not leave anything alone, IT HAS TO BE MODIFIED! This time it is my entertainment center. After just moving into my new house I needed to get my entertainment centers in proper order. Here is my record of how I modified and organized my entertainment centers. First lets look at the shelving, I ordered on of these The Shelf and Mounting. First I need a special size shelf so the glass shelves got replaced with custom wood ones. Then the bracket under one of them wasn't strong enough to support what I was putting on it. So I made a new aluminum bracket. But, this is just the start. I also had to modify the speaker mounts for my Bose system. Originally they were floor mounted stands. Here is what I started with.

The new design will be posted shortly.

Here is the new design. It changes the mounting from vertical to horizontal. I used some two piece clamp collars.

how on earth can you work on such a finely polished workbench ? I would loose most of the stuff I put on there just from the mirror effect. . . . :)

Hey David, Actually what you are looking at is just 1/16 sheet of black rubber on my tool chest. Check out my other thread to see the chest.

Also gang, here are shots of the final project.

Here are pics of the Headphone bracket. I converted it from a base mount to the hanging mount that bolts directly to the back of the TV. It uses the same holes on the TV that stand would mount to.
