Question

Hanging tv from 1'' knotty pine.


Hi,
I have a 32'' flat screen which weighs about 20-22 lbs and want to hang it from my knotty pine walls which are about 1'' thick. I haven't found any studs but was wondering if I used lag bolts or anchors that would hold 80lbs to hold the mount in place, would it work? Or would my walls come down with the tv? I bought a corner wall mount if that makes any difference.

Thanks,
Mike

You need to get into a stud, what do the instructions for the mount say?

It says find a stud but i also put up a tv mount with the lag bolts in some drywall without a stud and that thing isnt going anywhere.

I would not personally throw lag bolts into the wall...

If there is not a stud where you want to hang the TV, I bet there is a kit that will span the studs on either side, and allow you to put the TV exactly where you want it. I just googled it and the options seem endless.

And, do you really believe that. It is going somewhere, just right now it isn't, but give it time, it will fall to the floor.

Knotty pine walls are installed vertically. Most of the support framing(the studs) are horizontal. The vertical framing members might be 2 feet apart, or more, depending on who put them in.
The horizontal framing should be 16" on center up the wall.

as the previous poster mentioned, there will be horizontal blocking in the wall for the panelling to be nailed to

also, since the panelling is 1" thick the nails are almost certain to be visable either directly or indirectly ... meaning that you should be able to see the wood filler to hide the nails. this is your ticket to finding solid backing. by no means would i use a toggle bolt to hold a tv. even though they say there rated for 80lb i dont trust them. i always anchor to something solid, you can rig up a peice of pine thats decorative which you can fasten to the wall horizotally which will then give you something anchor your tv bracket to

So you don't want to do what the instructions tell you to do and your asking this question. What are you asking if you already have your mind made up? Go for it and see what happens.
