Mount a 26" LCD on plywood?



The local Walmart has a very nice (and cheap) TV cabinet, but the only thing I don't like is that it is made for bigger TVs and would put my tiny little 26" LCD down very low to the ground. So I have been toying with the notion of simply putting in a nice piece of plywood (painted to match, of course) that fills the back of the TV area, and then mounting the LCD in the center of it. Question is, will 3/4" plywook hold a 26" LCD, or do I need to put some 2x4s behind it for extra support?

18mm plywood will be more than strong enough to support your TV, you won't need any other support (assuming that the plywood itself is securely fixed ;) ).

The plywood should be more than strong enough to support a small LCD TV, just make sure that the plywood is firmly attached to the TV cabinet! :)
