Home Structured Cable System

Distribution Center

Since this is retrofit on existing 20+ year old house I decided to securely bolt 3/4" plywood to wall and build a distribution center. The metal panels from various vendors would have been nice but the costs did not outweigh the benefits. When we build a new house some day I'll get the fancy distribution panels.

I'll post details once I'm done.
