Steve, to maximize the load carrying potentail, and minimize stress on the wood, I would use clear lexan on both sides of the wood, making a sandwich.
A larger piece of lexan inside the pocket door will spread the weight of the television out more, for you folks with the pocket door. I have no experience with the pocket doorm, though, so y'all are on your own for that part.
A small dab of clear silicone on the base of the nead of the carriage bolt will hold it in place for mounting, and if/when you want to remove it, it will allow the bolt to come out with only a little effort, unlike the epoxy suggestion. Also, since it is clear, any excess you don't wipe up will be much less visible.
If you don't like silicone, you can get a tube of 3M plastic and emblem adhesive, it is more like a glue, and will hold the bolt to the lexan, but not the wood.

Terry,

I do not have a pocket door. The picture I have posted is a wall constructed of a sandwich of 1/8" plywood (Bread slices) and a middle of cedar 1x2s. You can see where the screws attach to the cedar since they stand out nicely. I am looking for an arm similar to what Balgrn made as I don't need a huge telescoping arm, but I do need it to move out slightly for a turn.

Steve
