I've just finished building and installing the carcass of a new entertainment center installed in a built-in niche 8'h x 6'w and now I want to "hang" my 52" flatscreen in the cabinet then trim around it to give it a custom built-in look. The back of the cabinet is not nearly strong enough to support an articulating mount, and I really don't need one anyway, so my thought was to build a small stud wall behind the TV attached to the top and bottom of the TV section, and mount a fixed LCD/Plasma mount that's set back the depth of the TV so the TV is flush with the faceframe. Does that sound like a reasonable approach?
If so, how would you recommend attaching the stud wall to the top and bottom of the TV section (top and bottom are each 2 sheets of 3/4" birch ply laminated together. I was thinking of lag screws, but if a bolt/nut combination is necessary, then that's an option too, although not preferred.
Thanks for your help,
