I'd like to make a TV wall bracket, a movable one. I've looked in
screwfix, and nothing does what I need, so its DIY time. Basically I
want a movable shalf that I can pull out from the wall or push back to
the wall, with the TV on it.
My initial thought was something like the usual stuff in screwfix, but
with an arm in 2 sections with a hinge joining them, so that as the TV
is pushed back the arm folds on itself, with its elbow sticking out
sideways. However I dont have the welding equipment to make something
like this strong.
The second thought I had was a single wood upright coming from the
floor to the shelf, hinged at its lower end so the shelf simply hinges
towards and away from the wall. Add a retaining cord at the top to
limit the amount of movement and we have a moveable shelf. The problem
with that is how to keep the TV shelf approximately horizontal as it
switng in and out. Or just maybe we dont need to?
So, I have half ideas, but nothing formed enough that I can make. All
