"q240z" says he doesn't care for "the newfangled plastic cabinets" modern electronics come in (for the most part, we have to agree). So he took a 1952 Philco TV console cabinet he purchased for $40 from an estate sale, gutted it out (like we did in January), and retrofit it with a Sharp Aquos LCD and PC system. More info and a couple more photos under the jump...

Cabinet stripped of doors/hardware, with a Sharp Aquos LCD.

A photo showing the installed PC components inside. His next project will be to take the existing cabinet doors and mount them so they will cover the the LCD by sliding inside between the TV and
the cabinet.
