Literally Hardware: How to start building a frame?

so I have basically my Raspi all Set up, have a 21" Screen which I have taken apart - at least already removed the whole frame, still need to separate the circuit boards from the metal frame - an am basically good to start. I also figured where to get my glass from. Either via the Community Order if open at that time or from https://www.glas-star.de where they also have a mirror specific for this project.
Now I come to the “struggle” I have. I would consider myself kind of skilled as craftsmen but if I know what to do. Though, I basically never did something from scratch and not much with wood. In regards of tools I also think I have most basic things which are needed. Now comes the question: How to start planning to build a nice frame?
- Are there any Editors which I can use to plan it?
- What to take care of when buying the wood?
- Any neat “tips and tricks” when doing the assembly?
I would appreciate any suggestion/tip/page to get started with it and finally get my mirror to the wall.
Thanks in advance!
@feedy88 I wouldn’t have pulled the circuit board out of the frame. Leave that bump intact if you can, it’s shielding to prevent interference.
The rest of it is up to you. Shortest cords possible. avoid adaptors. Minimize the wiring outside the unit by using power strips if possible. In my case, I’m installing in a wall to make it flush mount.
