I hated the huge ugly stand my television came with so I made a fixed wall mount.  

Photos and captions contain important information.

Step 1: Before Beginning

Tools I used:

Table saw, Miter saw, Hand drill, Tape measure.


Masking tape, couple bolts, couple lags, couple drill bits, One 2x4


The approximate size of a 2x4 is 1.5x3.5" by however long.

The size and location of mounting holes on the back of your TV or monitor may vary from mine.  The length, width, and type of bolts needed will also vary by TV, along with the size of each wooden component.  One thing to keep in mind is the standard spacing of studs in common construction - 16" on center.  
This is great. Simple, cheap, and functional. <br><br>I was wondering if you have any suggestions on what size lag bolts to use? <br><br>Is there an easy way to calculate how much weight such construction might hold? <br><br>Thanks, Great work!
<p>On other, similar projects I have seen for TV's you generally want a 3 1/2&quot; long 1/4&quot; lag bolt. That should be enough for anything but the biggest TV. Unless you have a 100&quot; screen. Then I don't know.</p>
<p>Love it, I am going to make something similar this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!</p>
Great idea!
Clever! This looks more trustworthy than the kit I bought to hang mine, and a whole heck of alot cheaper too!
Nice job man!
