Hi bellefontaine,
The inset panel for this cabinet door is made of wood and was purchased online at patterncut.com. It is pattern A, but they have many more patterns. Our carpenters then made the frame for it and attached a magnetic catch so there isn't any hardware on the outside of the cabinet. We painted the inside of the cabinet black so you can't see the equipment inside through the little air holes. All of this equipment is used with a single remote via the use of an IR repeater kit with the wiring going from the back of this cabinet to the back of the TV.

Swift Track, Inc.
We at Swift Track, Inc. have developed and patented the only glass block installation system with internal illumination capabilities, for the “Thin Line Series Blocks”. This system utilizes a uniquely extruded clear acrylic channeling profile, along with an injection-molded connector, which guarantees simplicity and perfection. Swift Track was designed to take into consideration the more complex commercial applications for some very dramatic and colorful, visual effects. Amazed by Swift Tracks design and ease in which one can introduce color and light, Swift Track has become the system of choice for residential and commercial builders, Hotel and Entertainment Chains, Architects, Designers and Homeowners. Because of the unique, clear, profile extrusion, two ½” channels act as chases to house fiber optics, rope lighting, even LED strips to illuminate your glass block project.

Where did you find the metal panel for this? I'm looking for something similar to recover my hv/ac vent which is unfortunately located in the middle of the largest wall in our living room. It's a huge eyesore ad I think something like this would work great. Thanks!

We purchased this grill from www.patterncut.com. It is pattern A, 1/4" thick wood. There are several different designs to choose from and you can specify your desired size. It comes unfinished and we painted it to match the walls because we did not want to call attention to this cabinet. We also installed a magnetic catch on the inside of the door so there isn't any hardware on the front of the cabinet. Our carpenters built the frame to go around the grill and, of course, the cabinet.

In this picture, it is an AV cabinet that contains the homeowner's cable box and dvd player. We ran wires from the back of the cabinet to her TV and put an RF lens at the front of her TV so when she points her remote at the TV, it controls everything on the TV and her DVD player.

Hope this helps everyone out.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Hide Your TV Cables
The panel for this niche was ordered online, and a carpenter framed and installed the door so it's flush with the wall. The client wanted the cabinet to be virtually unnoticeable, so the panel was painted to match the wall. The inside of the cabinet is painted black, so the cords can't be seen through the panel. This space already had framed sides with enough room to create a recessed niche. If this isn't the case in your home, Miner says you can build out more wall space to accommodate a niche. Make sure to frame the space so it's a little bigger than your electronic equipment. Add a shelf, cut a hole so that the wires can feed through to the TV, hang drywall, and you're all set!
Becky Harris added this to New Strategies for Hiding the TV
Speaking of ventilation for components, it's important for safety and worth consulting a professional about that. "We typically calculate a BTU rating of the equipment, and depending on the circumstances, either have exhaust fans, vented doors or an otherwise conditioned space," Gullo says.

Most electronic equipment emits heat, so it's important to make sure that whatever area the TV components are in has ventilation. And if you're worried about your remote, try installing an RF repeater — which sends a signal to the cable box — under the TV.
