Would love to offer Plasma tv framing in our shop. I'm looking for the basic how to's of doing it. Thanks.
 
Hey everyone I know we discussed this a little while ago, but I can't find the thread. I've searched LCD plasma, large screen... and can't find it.

BTW Bloomer, welcome to the grumble! The search feature should help, but I can't work it today! If I remember some of us have offered the service, entailed framing around the screen and not using the frame to support the screen, if that makes sense. (I used to have a small frame around my monitor, but when I upgraded to a flat screen I haven't made a new frame for this monitor!)
 
Build a frame that will be supported by the Plasma, not the other way around. Then use off-set clips to clip it to the set. Then rehang the set.

There's an article about doing that in one of the recent magazines - sorry, but I can't tell you which one. Within the last month.
 
Done one back in december.

It was fairly easy once the mouldings were stacked to get the right depth and used a wide fillet so the edge went right up to the actual screen so no hint of the tv edge showed.

It looked beautiful but I think I undercharged for the amout of tripple checking I did on this one.

I offer the service in conjunction with a high end home automation company.

So far it is a luke warm situation.

Hope this helped.
