After a bit of a hiatus due to other projects, I’m back at it. Think I should open a new post as the site suggested?
I got two cheap ~20" monitors and cut two panes of glass to size. I figure the first one I do will be kinda an MVP (minimum viable product) approach, and with the second I’ll customize it more to my preferences.
My main question is how to securely attach the wood rear frame to the monitor. This isn’t a glue situation is it? I’ve got few heavy duty glues but that still doesn’t “feel” secure.
The guides I’ve seen seem to gloss over like it’s obvious. To me at least, it’s not.
Remaining little questions:
How thick should/must the wood for the frame be? How much heft does it need to properly support the monitor/mirror? How much space can I safely save by cutting it down to get it closer to flush with the wall?
At least in my mind, the back frame shouldn’t encompass the entire perimeter but be strategically located on the back of the monitor. But maybe I’m wrong here, as I suppose it serves the purpose of blocking the view of the inner workings.
Thanks for all your help along the way. I’m looking forward to sharing pics of the completed beta build as soon as I can!
