Building an outdoor TV cabinet is not at all difficult. The result is more than worth it. Best of all, you’ll be able to watch the game – or whatever – while eating or relaxing on your deck or patio. How to Build an Outdoor TV Cabinet Before attempting any woodworking project, always wear safety glasses. In addition, take the necessary precautions to ensure a risk-free area of the project. 1. Install the back. Start with a half-inch piece of pressure-treated plywood. This panel is attached to the fence or wall on the back side, the TV stand is installed on the front side, and this plywood also forms the back of the cabinet box. Widget dimensions are determined by the size of the TV. Just leave a few inches of extra space on each side. Pin the sides. On both sides of the plywood, attach a pressure-treated 2×6 by sliding the painted deck screws at an angle into the fence. This 2 by 6 serves as the 4 sides of this outdoor TV cabinet. However, a deeper TV may require a larger material 3. Fasten the TV stand. Install the TV stand on the plywood, according to the installation package directions. Leave room for the TV to hang on the rails 4. Build cabinet doors. We manufacture cabinet doors from pressure treated fence panels. This will mimic the pattern of the fence behind the closet. The boards overlap each other by approximately one inch. We use waterproof wood glue and galvanized nails to secure everything together. Add reinforcement. To the back of each door, we attach a horizontal piece at the top and bottom, with a diagonal piece running between them to increase strength. Install the hinges. Attach the doors to the cabinet using regular gate hinges 7. Add water resistance. To prevent rain, we put peel-and-stick roofing starting tape on the top of the cabinet. Make sure it overlaps the front edge. We then cover that edge with a strip of fence material to create a closet shed-style roof with scraps of our fence boards. Again, we are using 1 inch overlapping patterns. stain. Once we’ve covered the cabinet with stains to protect it, we’re ready to install this outdoor TV cabinet and start enjoying it!
