This wall-mounted timber entertainment unit project utilises the glass shelf of an old piece of furniture and includes decorative LED lighting.

The project

 

Made my own wall-mounted TV unit. I reused the glass shelf from the old TV unit and finished it off with some LED lighting.

 

I used four hex head bolts at 75mm long and 600mm apart to line up with the studs. I also used a 50mm round washer under the head of the screws to distribute the load on the TV unit. I painted the screws and washers black to keep with the theme and it blends in with the timber lacquer.

You've done a great job @eriktank, it looks fantastic! May I ask, what timber did you use?

Morning @eriktank 

That really looks pretty sophisticated! I love the colouring and how solid it looks.

How is it standing up? And is there anything you would change if you redid the project?
