DIY: TV Display Easel on Wheels

Alexa Hotz February 21, 2013

Earlier this week, we posted on Swedish designer Axel Bjurstrom’s TV easel, but Tricia Rose of Rough Linen might have beat him to it.

Tricia Rose, our Marin County-based friend, designed and built her own flat screen easel with the help of a chop saw, which she highly recommends, “it makes it all so much easier, perfect angles and straight cuts.” Read on for further instruction:

Above: The finished product.

Above: “The tricky bit was getting the correct compound angles where they all join at the top with one long bolt,” says Rose, who is shown here working out the right angles, brace points, and eyeline of the easel. In the end, she used three 2 x 4s, bracing the front legs with two shorter, horizontally placed pieces of wood; one at the top where the TV screen is screwed into, and one at the bottom where it rests.

Above: Rose installed a chain to run from the lower horizontal brace in front to the back leg of wood to balance the entire piece, just a standard easel does. The final touch was adding three Steel Casters to the bottom of the legs. Our favorite detail? Rose covers the set with an interesting piece of linen scrim that she pieced together when the TV is not in use.
