wires! be gone.

Any good Modernist will tell you you can't have your wires showing. You just can't. It'd be like showing up to your wedding with your fly brutally open while pitching tent wearing Spongebob Squarepants underwear. That ain't cool.

Since the beam holding up the second cantilever was so tall, the plugs and wire receptacles had to be placed too high to hide them behind the console. That ain't cool (see Spongebob Squarepants comments; ibid). So we had Dan and Jessica, our pals over at Coulbury Designs fab up a cover for the plugs and wires.  

o ye of delicate constitution, avert ye eyes! Avert ye eyes! 
I see wires! I see plugs! I see Spongebob Squarepants!
(I also see a photo of myself playing theremin with a country band...)

We designed the thing to extend out from the wall to the right and across all the plugs and the console. We also extended it down low enough to hide the wires coming up from the sub woofer (that white thing) but not so far down that the wires wouldn't come out at the proper height behind the console.

Dan and Jessica came up with the brackets that not only hold up the wire hider but also hold the wires. Brilliant!



And here's the final result: 

The fly is zipped. Spongebob is in his rightful place. The wedding is saved. And the Modernist is pleased.
