19'' Magic Mirror - How I Built The Frame
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!
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 monitor
Enjoy the build, and please reach out with any questions!
