    Will this TV Fit My Cabinet?

    Assume cabinet inside space is 36 1/8" wide by 19 3/4" deep by 26 3/4" high. The back is closed. The front opening is framed left and right side with a 2" wide vertical strip that supports the hinges for doors that open outward. (making the front outside edge only 32 1/8" wide).

    Assume the LCD TV is 35.55" wide by 24.8" high by 2.2" deep. Question: If I slide the TV into the opening at an angle, can I then turn it parallel to the front opening without it binding on the inside sides?

    (Math obviously not my strongest asset!)

    With the data supplied, you will have 0.506 inches (call it 1/2 inch) clearance as you turn the LCD back to parallel.
    If the edges are "rounded" instead of sharp square, you may have an additional 1/32nd of an inch.
