I've got a 24 inch LCD computer monitor that I'd like to mount to table or wall-mounted bracket but the monitor doesn't have the common VESA fitting that would make it easy, so I need to cobble something together.
As it's behind the monitor it won't be seen so it doesn't matter what it looks like. The monitor's not particularly heavy but adjusting the monitor will impose a shearing or levering force on the join.
See photos attached - as the back is not very flat, smooth or solid, I tried gluing a couple of pads of timber about 7cm square on either side which were linked with a strip of timber to which the bracket was screwed, but they came off.
I guess the key to this is the way the pads are attached. My first effort used epoxy putty to hold the pads on with some hot-melt glue round the edge afterwards but it clearly wasn't enough.
