I can imagine the particle board(?) TV stand being the weak link.

Pictures, please!

I can imagine the particle board(?) TV stand being the weak link.
it mounts to the metal frame. the wood shelves just sits on top
of the metal frame. it's a VTI TV Stand. I like this design, very
light weight, easy to move and setup.

concept works great. just need to fine tune. unfortunately
the aluminum tubing at .125" thick is still not thick enough
since it flexes. It's holding up a 46" tv. Also, I'm going
to lower it another 3.5". I overshot a lot. I'm not a mechanical savy guy. all done with a cordless drill. would be nice with a drill press for straight holes.

I'm going to get some angle iron to re-inforce the aluminum.
that plus lowering it a few inches more should help.

other than that, I'm really glad I did this so the center can
now sit on top of the tv stand instead of in front of it.
