Up till now, we have been watching a 13" picture-tube TV/VCR combo. Normally, it sits on the cooktop cover beside a small DVD player. This ensemble would be moved to the dining table when we wanted to cook.
While constantly moving the stuff got old pretty quick, it took me until now to finally look for and find the LCD TV/DVD combo I wanted - A 15" Sylvania, model LD155SC8.
sold me a small-TV articulating arm for, in my opinion, less money than the part is worth - the mount's construction is impressively beefy.
The TV mounting plan going in was to mount the arm to the rib running up the wall behind the cooktop. The rib's placement was such that the TV would articulate out of the cooktop's way. But after much finger stroking & gnashing of teeth, I decided that I was not going to be happy with the results from either an aesthetic or life-of-installation viewpoint.
I am much happier with Plan B - A steel bracket mounted to the countertop:
Not shown is how the TV will be tethered together to keep the arm from articulating while on the road. It will probably be a combination of elastic material and Velcro.
Once I get a short extension cord, the TV will be plugged into a non-galley outlet.
