Benno TV bench add-on

Materials: Benno TV bench, white shelves, dowels, drill

Description: I wanted to place my stereo next to the TV but I didn’t want it to look messy with all the cables. So i built this add-on for my TV bench.

I connected the shelves with some dowels without using screws or angle brackets. It took me about half an hour to build this and another 1 1/2 hours for installing and cleaning up. :) Now everything is in place and it fits perfectly between two Billy bookcases.

    looks like your amp has not that much air to breathe.

    thats why i built my HiFi Rack on my own. out of concrete walls and wooden shelves.

    but if the amp isn’t overheating, have fun with it. looks good and seemless.
