I was recently asked by a friend to build an entertainment center. No big deal, right? Simple case, some shelves, etc. etc. The one part of this request that has me scratching my head a bit is this: Mount the tv on a vertical stand so that it can be hidden in the table when it’s not needed.
He was thinking about having a hand crank or some other manual mechanism to raise the tv. Pneumatic shocks to assist. While that seems possible, motorized mounts are around and seem like a nicer (and $$) touch.
Has anyone out there taken on something like this? Any thoughts or words of wisdom to share?
