How to build a weatherproof outside TV enclosure

Watching TV outdoors lets you enjoy nature without missing your favourite shows. Unfortunately, lugging the TV in and out of the house each time you want to watch can be a hassle. It can be much easier to create a weatherproof case for the TV instead, which allows the TV to be stored outside no matter what the conditions. This only works in warm climates as cold temperatures can impair the functioning of the TV.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

1/2-inch thick clear plexiglass2 hingesDrill and screwsTape measureMagnet fastenerJigsawRubber bumpersCaulkScrew handle

Instructions

1 Measure the dimensions of the TV. Add two inches to each side. The final measurements should create a rectangle.

2 Use a jigsaw to cut out the six sides of the TV enclosure using the measurements from step one.

3 Assemble the enclosure. Use screws and a drill to put the sides together. Use three screws per connection. Screw the back panel to the bottom panel. Screw the side panels to the bottom panel. Screw the back panel to the side panels. Screw the top panel to the back and side panels. Leave the front panel unattached.

4 Use the drill to drill a one-inch diameter hole in the back panel. This is where the cables will be run through.

5 Apply rubber bumpers to the front edges of the top, bottom and side panels. These are thin rubber adhesive strips.

6 Attach hinges to the front left side of the panel. Place the hinges equidistant from each other and the bottom and top of the box.

7 Attach those hinges to the remaining unattached front panel. Line up the front panel with the box to make sure the location of the hinges is correct.

8 Attach a magnetic fastener clamp to the front of the right side panel. Attach the other part of the magnet to the front door panel. The front panel should now open and close like a door and stay shut using the magnet fastener.

9 Screw in a handle to the right side of the front panel. This will make opening the panel easier.

10 Apply waterproof caulk to all the seams of the box. Let them dry.

11 Set the box in a location outside. Place the TV inside the box. Run the power and TV cables through the hole in the back of the box. Open the front panel of the box and enjoy the TV.
