I have quite a tangle of cables leading between the internet router, television, A/V reciever and Xbox.
Was thinking about building a box to dump the power bars and cables into. (UK plugs)
Was worried about fire risk. The box would be ventilated, and the cables would not be tightly coiled inside it.
Do you think a fire resistant varnish (or lacquer) and hardwood construction be reasonably safe for this? Cable boxes on the market are generally plastic (fire resistant plastic), so my suspicion is that a fire resistant varnished wood box might be no worse off, but any advice would be helpful!
