Mounting Flat Panel TV outside of Wall Unit
I just ordered a 55" LED Flat Panel TV but I'm not sure how I'm going to mount it. My house was built in 2001 when projection TV's were still very popular. There is a custom entertainment center sunk into the wall and there is 26" between the wall and the front of the wall unit where there was once a 52" projection TV inside. Since the distance between the wall and the front of the wall unit is so great, mounting the TV to the wall is not an option. I looked for an under mount since there is 1 1/2 " thick shelf right above the top of where the TV should sit (which I could reinforce the shelf too with another 1 1/2 board) but I cant find an under mount that will support a 55" TV.
Has anyone come across this problem? If so what was your solution?
