But see, you've had that house for over 10 years, so you've had time to build up a nice collection of tools, plus the garage has always been a workshop. that's what I need to find.. space. I can go back home and get most of my dad's tools when I want.. I just need the sapce.
That's a REALLY big brace for a TV. What are you mounting that too? how big is the TV? I mean, I've mount 50" screen to Ikea furniture and it wasn't that strong or well designed..
It's a 52" Samsung LCD TV.. The mounting holes are 15 3/4" inches square, and I made the mount 2 inches bigger all the way around, so it can always be modified in the future for a different TV. It's over engineered, to be sure, but then, normally you don't weld your entertainment center together, and then lag bolt it into the floor.
