The hole I cut was 20 inches wide between beams. It just so happened that it was the exact same measurement as the cabinet. The cabinet was from a giant 3 piece wall unit that was taking up too much room. I decided to use the one piece with the glass door for the media closet.

My dad made these from scratchas a Christmas present. 15" diameter with 16" diameter glass tops. I showed my dad a pic of a film reel table and he just went from there. If I had bought the ones I found it would have cost about 500.00 per table.
