Tom Ware Painters' wife was being driven to distraction by wires and boxes and remote controls and more cables and extension leads and speakers and blinking lights and telephones and mobiles and laptops and.... --- well, I'm sure you get the picture. 
It was a nightmare that takes place all over the country, in countless homes (including mine). But this home was important. It is HER home. And she doesn't want to see the tangle of wires etc. So her husband, Tom, being the super chap that he is, decided his ears had had enough ear bashing and he needed to tidy away his toys.... 

Along came Jim. 
From a standing start, it took me a day to build the unit, from scratch, out of three sheets of MDF. Now EVERYTHING is tucked away behind vented doors (to let the air circulate around the electronics). The cables running to the TV have been hidden and so harmony reigns in the home, and Tom can now watch his favourite programmes in super surround sound in peace. It's the job of every happily married man to keep his wife content - isn't it?

Update: Tom has now decorated the room and unit in matching colours
