As part of my ongoing bedroom makeover / renovation, I wanted to hide the TV that was sitting on top of my dresser, so I decided to make a built-in cabinet for a motorized TV lift with a concrete top. I made the concrete countertop using GFRC concrete, and I made the cabinet for the TV lift from plywood. This meant that I had to make the lid for the TV lift from concrete, which posed some challenges. I also embedded aluminum channels for LED strips into the underside of the concrete countertops. To top it off, I added an Alexa controller that allows me to control the LED lighting using Alexa or Google Assistant. I'm pretty happy how the hidden TV lift came out.
