Thanks. Unfortunately "mama" is not happy with the new configuration, so I'll either be buying a new wrap around sofa, or changing it all back... damn women!

That's a great APR!

Are you going to put the wiring in the wall?

The knee is really bad right now. Thank the lord that I had a few Oxy's left over.

Yes Chris, I'm burying the wiring in the wall, but wanted to see exactly where the stone finished, so I could do a good job. I also need to build a box to place the DVR, Blue Ray, and other assorted crap needed to run the TV.

Build a hollow mantle with an open face and put the devices inside.
