    From a simplicity and economic standpoint. Building a lower "case" and have the TV sit on it will be far easier. Pallet wood is short, so getting the strength and height needed for a taller unit would be far more complex.

    Thanks for the advice..will consider that Its just I am the only one here and would here to remove the tv myself just thought I could build around it.

    You could just build below it and then get a wire guard to cover the cabling that goes up to the tv.

    it looks like your part way there with the wire cover. building a 2 shelf unit to hose the DVD player and other type equipment should be pretty straight forward. Just be sure to leave the back open for wires and ventilation.

    Found a site with an idea, you can probably use it as a start and maybe view what others have done with pallets and put a new design together for yourselfhttp://www.palletfurnitureblog.com/pallet-entertainment-centers/
