My first Magic Mirror build using a recycled 19’’ TFT monitor.
You can view the configurations for my modules here:
My housing design consisted of the frame, followed by the two-way glass and monitor stacked on top of each other. This stack was surrounded by the dummy box and finally a plywood back board was attached to the back.
I created a frame and dummy box using two 3-in x 6-ft pine boards. Then I attached the two-way glass to the back of the frame with silicone glue.
I secured the monitor inside the dummy box and flat against the glass using four 4-in corner braces.
I attached the dummy box to the frame back using 1.5-in corner brackets.
The plywood backboard was attached using 2-in corner brackets, followed by a French cleat to allow the entire unit to hang on the wall, no stud needed!french_cleat_plywood.jpeg
Lastly, I used cable ties to organize the cords behind the monitor and velcro squares to secure the power boxes and Raspberry Pi to the back of the monitorvelcro_squares.pngback_view.png
Enjoy the build, and please reach out with any questions!
