Read the statement by Michael Teeuw here.
Hey, relatively new to the group, wanted to show off my build.
Using a Pi 3 with a 39" Insigna LED TV.
Frame is TIG welded and brushed aluminum, frame is 3/4" oak ply that was bondo(ed) and then painted. Whole thing is 24" tall and 36" wide.
@binaryhellstorm hey looks very Good
@binaryhellstorm Great job!
Would you share how you build this frame please?
very nice… where did u get access to tig welder?
@sdetweil I run a local makerspace, so I was able to talk to our metal shop guy and he had one, in total fairness I didn’t do the welds on the frame myself he did them for me, as this was my first attempt at TIG welding.
@bdream Sure so I had some 3/4" (19MM) oak plywood kicking around. I ripped it down on the table saw, I glued that up and put screws in the end and then covered them over with bondo
The screen runs to the edges, but not quite to the top.
I did some rough cutouts on the top for the speakers, and made a VESA mount plate out of sheet steel on the back
Speaker openings were pretty rough, but I planned on covering them.
Here are the 3D printed covers, I didn’t bother making the screws all pretty and hidden since there’s only about a foot between the top of the mirror and the ceiling
Here’s the whole thing painted, if you look in the corners you can see the 3D printed brackets that I’ve used to hold it to the wall.
@binaryhellstorm what a awesome work you made!
I see, you have a great workingplace and tools
@binaryhellstorm Tig is fun for sure. Not many can do it
