I am noticing a new trend with the infusion of flat panel TV's into the market.
For the last 4 or 5 years I have been doing a lot of large entertainment centers, they averaged about 9-11 feet wide and 7'6" to 9' tall.
Lately folks have been buying the flat panel and if they have a large entertainment center I have been adding a plywood filler about 7" back from the face of the stiles, in the hole where the old, deep tv was. They mount brackets upon this plywood and hang the new flat panel. That is not the trend. Had you at Hello
The trend I am noticing is this..Folks are hanging the flat panel on the wall and having me build a console below for the components. This can be more furniture like and thus more expensive, but, if they can afford a flat panel they can afford me. Just throwing this out to someone looking for a niche market. HELLO...
