  • Flat Screen Monitor Stand

    I have it in my head that I am going to build a stand for my 22" LCD monitor that will let me turn it from facing the desk to 90 to 180 and face away from the desk. Not that I like looking at the back of it, but to show someone what I am talking about, I can just flip it around.

    I also want to make a pivot in the plan so I can view in portrait as well as landscape.

    I don't have plans as of yet, but I have a good idea in my head.

    The part I need help with is, I am not sure what I want to use for the pivot points to create a friction type joint. I am trying to avoid using set screws or thumb screws. I will buy the ball mount for the back of the monitor so I can tilt and pan the monitor.

    I know that I could buy one, probably 50 to 100 bucks. But then I cant say I built it the way I wanted it. Even if I spend twice that, I can say hey thats one of a kind.

    Here is a screen shot of kinda sorta where I am going with this. I welcome any and all ideas gentlemen.

    LOL that is NOT me.
    Here is what I see right now, the dead space to the right is what I don't care for.
