Build a frame to hold 4 TV's?
Hi, I am a high school senior and in a TV production program at my school, and we are looking to create a set for our news show. Part of one of our ideas is to have 4, 32" flat screen TV's mounted 2x2 to make a square of tv's.

However, we would need to construct some sort of frame to support the 4 tv's. We have 4 mounts, but we are just puzzled on how to build a frame efficiently without having the tv's tip over. We don't have the luxury of being able to just mount them to a wall. How do we build a frame like that?
I have helped build sets in the past, but I am really clueless here. Any help would be MUCH appreciated

my best advise would be to contact your parent-teacher organization and see if any members are carpenters and would be willing to give you some assistance. its kind of difficult in providing you with suggestions not knowing how much room or materials you have, as well as skill level.

someone with knowledge and skills would be able to make short work of it.

Good luck!

No idea if this would work but I'd be asking around to see if they had an office devider they were not using.

There also called cubicals.
If your near a city check the yellow pages for used office equipment. I've bought them as cheap as $10.00 because there was a tare in the material.

I would attach a piece of 1/2 CDX plywood to the back side, drill the holes for the brackets and tap in some of these from the back side.

You do not need the expencive Stainless steel ones, just an example shown.

another way is to build a quick 2x4 wall with a piece of plywood on it. use 45 degree angled 2x4s that go half up the wall and kickback to the floor that attach to another 2x laid flat on the floor that's connected center way at the ends and bottom of both edges of the wall.
