I just re-united with my Trillium 4500 last week after storing out of state for year +
So I am a new-like owner too. Will be following this thread as I will be doing some mods too. Ed, really like your cabinets and the support wall panel for TV too. Was thinking on how to support a tv arm and like your idea.
That plywood is birch? It looks awfully nice for a home depot purchase.

I should clarify,this is not the Home Depot birch plywood.
The stuff at hardware store is just regular plywood with a thin birch veneer on the surface.
It also has far fewer plys in the construction than I used here and often there are voids in the inside plys too.
I used a Void free Baltic Birch that comes in 5' x 5' sheets instead of the 4' x 8' sheets of the hardware store item.
The plys are all birch and there are about twice as many plys too.
This way when rounded over the edge is an attractive(to me)uniform thickness and density edge that takes a nice finish and will not chip or tear when finished too.
It is harder to find and a little nore expensive but the higher grade of plywood is more stable and looks a lot better to me.
It is also stronger for a given thickness due to the extra plys and zero void construction.
Most lumber yards will either have some or be able to tell you where you can find it.
