As I mentioned recently, I bought a flat screen tv.  I also picked up a articulating wall mount, which allows the tv to be moved around.  I needed it because I wanted to put the tv in a corner.  It ended up being a minor construction project since the plate which you attach to the wall was too short to cross two studs.  I built a frame which you can see in the picture.  It was a bit of work, but after it was done – attaching the tv mount and tv was a piece of cake.  Of course I had to do one extra Home Depot run to buy attaching bolts.  The ones that came with the mount were for a concrete wall.  Who has concrete walls?

The small pieces of tape indicate the studs

That’s quite a solid-looking frame you built. Thanks for the mention.

“Who has concrete walls?”

Think highrise condo. There are more than a few being built these days… If you’re attaching this to drywall with studs you’re probably using toggle bolts with their own hardware included.

Great roundup with lots to dip into. And thanks for links. I just finished a few hours on a construction project of my own this week — assembling a ping pong table. It didn’t go according to plan, either. Too much trouble to return, though.

Your construction project looks real nice. We’ve mounted the TV in the corner as well. I simply bought a mount that has more degrees of movement on Kijiji.
