Video: Building a Corner Media Unit from Materials in the Barn


Corner Media Unit With Television Mounted by Adam Bearup

My wife created a “honey-do” list for me quite a while ago, and my schedule never allowed me to get started on that list. Like many other people in our country, I have found myself working from home more than I had in the past. One of the big items on the list is to clean the barn — and that got me thinking about the other line items on the list.

The Need for a Corner Media Unit

As I looked at the different projects that would require me to build stuff, I immediately thought about all of the material that I had accumulated throughout my building career and how using that material to build stuff would be better than just throwing it out.

My wife approached me about how dangerous it was that our television was on top of an old, unstable book shelf. We do not have cable or satellite channels, and all of our television watching is with DVDs. Our two-year-old enjoys switching out DVDs constantly and that was making my wife nervous because the area looked like tragedy could strike at any minute.

Given the choice to either stay inside and watch the Earth Shelter Documentary again or go out to the barn and see if we had the materials to build a new corner media unit, I chose the latter. For fun, I took along the video camera and filmed the process.
