Unboxing the TV lift mechanism is the first step for me when I start a larger project like this. Here’s a video of the unboxing.

To help get organized, I like to take all the parts out of the box and spread them out on a work table so I can visualize them and can start thinking about them. From time to time over the next week or two I will revisit the lift mechanism parts, take a few measurements and eventually find the inspiration to get started on building the cabinet.  The TV lift cabinet will be part of a larger renovation project on my sunroom.
