Quality Entertainment Center for an amazing home theater viewing experience!


Syracuse TV Risers 10 Year Anniversary

Thank you for visiting my website,

My name is Kerry Hanifin and I am proudly taking solid wood entertainment centers into the next generation. Syracuse TV Risers was established in 2012 when my loving wife asked me, “Could you make something strong and beautiful using real wood which would raise our television and shelf our cable box and Blu-ray player?” She posed this question to me after we purchased a double pillow top mattress and our flat screen television was only half visible while relaxing in bed.

Designing unique wood products has always been a passion of mine…..so, I was ready for this challenge! I immediately went to work on designing and hand crafting an amazing TV Riser out of “real” ¾” Red Oak wood. She loved the riser so much she did not hesitate in asking me to make one for our living room, kitchen, man cave and camp. It was not soon after this I listed my TV Risers on eBay and Amazon, as well as placing in local retail stores such as Ra-Lins and Olums…….Syracuse TV Risers was born!

My TV Risers are the absolute “must have” item after purchasing a flat screen television, sound bar or center channel speaker. You will love the ergonomically correct way your TV Riser properly raises the television and shelves all of your components.

Do you remember back in the day we watched analog televisions which sat on the floor or just a few feet up from the floor? Looking down on a television for hours per day results in slumping shoulders, sore necks and definite incorrect posture. Research tells us your television should be raised in a higher capacity to prevent these issues. Today we find ourselves kicking back and looking up at our televisions for a better and ergonomically correct viewing experience. It is with the “theatre like” viewing experience where Syracuse TV Risers shines with expertise. If you are having infrared remote problems because your Sound Bar is in front of your TV, we can raise your TV 2 or 3 inches for you with a custom TV Riser.

Buying a new television today is a big investment. Protect your investment with the best TV Riser on the market from Syracuse TV Risers! Each TV Riser is handcrafted using high quality wood, Kreg Jigs, stains and polyurethane.
