Made an attempt at my own wall mounted tv unit.
Reused the glass shelf from the old tv unit, and finished it off with some LED them lighting.
I think it turned out alright👍

That looks really awesome @eriktank ! great job.
Would mind letting us know what mechanism you used to attach unit to the wall?
Welcome to the Workshop community @0zeero.
It's fantastic to have you join us. I'm sure @eriktank really appreciates your feedback and hopefully can respond with an answer about mounting.
With a unit this size and weight I would advise fixing directly into timber studs. A suitable fixing would be Buildex 14-10 x 75mm Zinc Plated Bugle Head Batten Timber Screws 25 Pack which could be countersunk into the timber and the heads filled over with timber putty. Alternatively, if you had a brick wall you could utilise Ramset 10 x 75mm Countersunk Dynabolt Plus Masonry Anchors to fix the unit to the wall.
I trust you'll find loads of inspirational projects on the site, similar to this one, contributed by our very talented members. If you ever need any advice or have something to share with the community please let us know.

Thanks Mitchell for the great tips. I am really liking the site and awesome project everyone is posting.
I have the gyprock wall, so yes i would have to find the studs. Just the alignment would be a bit of challenge. I will check the studs in wall and see what works best.
Thanks for your feedback on my TV unit.
As Mitchell has mentioned you can use bugle screws at 75mm or 100mm fixing into the wall studs and finishing them flush.
I used ×4 timber hex bolt head screws @ 75mm long and obviously 600mm apart(in line with 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.
Thanks for the feedback. Cheers
Thanks @eriktank ,
Thank you for the details. Washers is really good idea. Hoping to find some time for this project!
