What cool thing would you build with a TV lift mechanism?
The good people at TV Lift Cabinet dot com sent me a 2500LA lift mechanism and asked me to make something with it. This lift will fit up to a 40″ television but I currently have a 20″ and a 32″ TV that I can use in it. I don’t want to make a regular TV console cabinet with it though, I want to make something that will totally surprise you when a TV unexpectedly lifts out of it. I want something weird or wacky. My current ideas are: some kind of wooden suitcase that you carry into a room, set it down, plug it in, press a remote, and a TV lifts out of the top and you can start playing video games. Or maybe some kind of tall book shelf with a TV that lift up from the back. Or maybe a writing desk with small shelves in the back and they either lift up with the TV or it somehow moves them out of the way. I’ve also thought about making some kind of minimalist enclose that I can just screw into the back of different abject that will allow a TV to pop up behind it.
If anybody has any ideas please leave me a comment on this post or hit me up on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook with the hashtag #tvliftidea
