I've completed a few builds so far (side table, changing table, king size bed) and am thinking about working on a media cabinet to replace out old Ikea one. However, I'm not sure what to do about getting good ventilation in the back for all of our components (cable box, Wii, Xbox, etc). However, we need something with doors to hide at least some of the components since we'll have a walking baby in a year. I was thinking about the Benchmark of something similar:
I was wondering if maybe I could make the back out of pegboard instead of plywood? Maybe even leave the top drawers off and the back off behind the drawers as well (that way the worst offenders, the Xbox and cable box, would have a place to be well ventilated)? Would just having a back on the bottom give enough stability? Any other ideas?
