Easy and Sturdy wall-mount system

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I decided I wanted to mount my monitors on the wall, since having them on the desk just pisses me off for some reason.
It was really easy, just had to clean off the tablesaw tongue.gif. This is very easy if you have a drill-press and a tablesaw.

Leave some space in between the wall so the monitors can hang. I used 3 6"x4" pieces of MDF to mount it away from the wall.

I had to countersink the screws because they weren't long enough. The screws were M4s, and they were 40mm long. That's the longest home depot or lowe's had, so that's what I had to work with.
Anyway, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Tell me what you think.

I'd be way too worried about knocking the monitor from the bottom up and popping it off the wall to my great dismay. Great method if you're not clumsy tho
