Gerry wraps a TV round the pole. Sexier than this 2-pole version I received in 2006. Guess with the sleekness of LCD TVs nowadays, you can do away with the extra pole.
“I wanted a TV stand to mount my 32” LCD. I fabricated the two rails that attach to the TV from steel shelf bracket vertical rails. It was just a matter of drilling three holes in each rail to match the TV mounting holes and a center hole for attaching to the Stolmen pole. The angle bracket is from a Stolmen clothes rail installation kit.
I assembled the unit on the floor with the back side up to make it easy and then lifted it into position and secured it. Cables are enclosed in Ikea Montera plastic cable holder that is attached to the back of the Stolmen tube.”
