I had some left over weathered fencing from the wine rack project and thought I would continue the rustic theme that is developing in my pool-table room. The frame is built out of 2×4s which I nailed the old fence boards to the rectangular frame. The depth of the frame is roughly 8 inched. I bolted two 2×4s to the studs in the wall as the weight support and then drilled 2.5 inch screws going through the frame (down from the top and up from the bottom) into the wall mounts. It feels sturdy and there is now give or shimmy. I learned a bit of a lesson about building the frame to too tight to the dimensions of the television. Because of this I had to install the project with the TV is place which was a bit nerve racking but with a buddy’s help (who has recently caught the addicted for woodworking) it went very easy. Build in enough room so your hands can clear all sides and there is a limit apparently to the amount of wood in a room that a girlfriend can tolerate from a decorating stand-point! That is certainly debatable.
