thought id best post up my build of a floating wall which was started that fateful day when I showed grooves build to my wife. She instantly loved it and suggested we do it which has been the only time this has happened with an AV or technology project! of course this was not one to let pass so I carefully read through grooves thread to map a plan out on how to build one. The old setup consisted of two magika cabinets around a magika TV stand with my old 32" sony CRT which was all removed. We got the 42" Panasonic PZ70 after a lot of reading here and have an 8.5 foot viewing distance to the wall. Two besta ikea units were purchased as per grooves build (-1) and one built to hold the TV whilst work commenced. First up, send in the little one to clear out the old mess! The sofa has already been removed in prep for the new one arriving. Frame build starts on wall and the new sofa and TV are covered from the dust Outside frame up and secured. I used 50mm * 47mm rough sawn wood from B&Q for the edges. To secure them to the wall I used 8 * 100mm frame fixers. If youre buying these for your build then go to screwfix. They were £9.48 for 16 in B&Q but i managed to pick up 100 of the same type in screwfix for £5.87 !!! - http://www.screwfix.com/prods/19356/Fixings/Frame-Fixings/8-100-Frame-Fixing The wall bracket anchor bolts are drilled into place and the mount tested for level. Again I bought the fixings from screwfix, £2.95 as opposed to £9.48 in B&Q - http://www.screwfix.com/prods/17637/Fixings/Shield-Anchors/Shield-Anchor-Stud-Type-10-x-125mm-Drill-Size-16 You can see in the above and below pics that i took the corners off the frame so the rope light would bend around it easier and give a wider arc. Vertical 50 * 47mm posts were fitted on the sides to give the mdf some structure to lock to. 100mm * 47mm batons were placed behind the wall bracket and the protruding anchor bolts passed through pre-drilled holes in the wood. For a belt and braces approch i decided to attach the braket to both the wall with anchor bolts and the wood with the coach bolts that came with it. Thats all for tonight, wil post up more tomorrow once ive processed more pics.
