HDTV Lift Cabinet Videos

Huge HDTVs are great for gaming and for watching movies and TV shows on Netflix or good-old cable. But big-screen TVs come with some space problems. You need TV furniture or wall mounts, and you need to figure out a way to hide all the wires and cables.

If you really want to take it up a notch, you can even consider getting a remote-controlled cabinet that hides your TV in a piece of furniture, but ready-made solutions are insanely expensive. Better yet, if you’re into do-it-yourself projects, you can actually build one yourself, and a series of videos shows you how easy it is.
