Thanks, RT. I have enough teak to make one of these, just not much time until January. Given enough time, I can generally do decent woodwork, electrical work etc. but I would starve to death if I was doing it for a living.

For the time being why not a non GFCI? Unless outdoors or around a sink non GFCI should do just fine. On our DF, we have several of the "boxes" - seems standard DF practice.

$15 for one outlet isn't bad, but add the $12.00 shipping on each one, and $27.00 is getting pretty pricey! Better to just make IMHO, then you get exactly what you want . . . but that's just me.

Tom, thanks a lot for exposing my linear thinking!

This is the perfect short-term solution. Really, thanks.

Actually a good idea. Combines the right look with an approved box underneath.

So, following Tomís (and Scottís) good suggestion, I just installed a conventional receptacle and it fits perfectly in the slim surface-mount PVC box and doesnít look bad at all. If I decide to upgrade to wood, Iíll do it when I can spend some time and not muck it up.

I also found a Sanus wall mount that does a much better job holding the flatscreen tightly against the wall. It doesnít articulate, but that doesnít matter with our install. $59 at Best Buy and it locks the TV in mechanically vs. relying on Velcro, like the Peerless unit Iím returning.

This allowed me to fit a 43Ē screen on a saloon wall and have it totally out of the way with no exposed wiring. Iíll post pictures one of these days.

Thanks again, all.
