Outdoor TV Cabinet
So my dad and I found a great deal on a TV over Thanksgiving. I didn't have enough room for the 43" in the garage, so off to the Depot to get lumbar for building something outdoors. We went with pressure treated lumbar and framed everything from 1x6's. Then we installed some 1x4 for the cleats to hold it all up. The frame is pretty light. The TV would be mounted directly to the wall with a mount. Now came the door(s). First we wanted to front raise the door, but could not get a hinge to work. When we did, we found out that my wife would not be able to bring it down without a stool. Soooooo...instead of spending money to make new doors, we cut it in half and added some trim. Overall, it came out pretty nice. Learned that using a Kreg and pressure treated lumbar can pull your screws through a bit. Lesson learned. Now, the last problem was to seal it up. One side is exposed to FL weather. Our door gap kind of sucked. Blame that on the pre turkey day festivities and neighbors all dropping by to see what we were up to. Trust me, the gap looked good THAT day. Foam weather stripping was not going to do, so we opted to clay weatherstripping and built up what we needed to. In the long run, I think this was a good FL option.
