Default Weekend project for the living room

...that somehow slid into the week (but thatís nothing new lol). The wife asked for a TV wall panel.

I started by making the framework:



Mounted on the ledger and fastened to the beams with angle mounts:



Chose T&G boards for the panel, blue pine treated with linseed oil:



Had to stop for now, since the TV mount bracket isnít here yet. Once it arrives, Iíll finish stitching up the panel, put a box shelf on the bottom for paraphernalia & whatever trim the wife wants around the outer edges.

More pictures to follow.

Nice idea. A big screen deserves some framing around it. It looks pretty spartan just slapped against a blank wall. Look forward to seeing more. Will there be a shelf or cabinet on it? Extra speakers?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Tom,

Yes, there will be a floating box shelf for all the accessories. Iíll run the wires and the cables behind the panel. No plans for speakers, weíre thinking a soundbar.

*Idea!*....if you hinge the paneling along one vertical edge it'd give you a discrete hidey hole for your long guns. Just sayin'.

The bracket has arrived !





100% worth the money paid for it. Looks and feels like it could survive a nuclear holocaust.

I like your prioritything! Get the flat screen up prior to actually finishing the planking...
