I am rebuilding my station shelving and have a question on mounting the computer displays (3 ea.).  I would like to mount them so that they are enclosed by the shelving/dividers...and not on the standard display mounts.  Sort of like a "built-in" look rather than the regular display mounts which are 3 inches or so above the shelf surface.  I seen pictures of displays with this built-in look and would like to duplicate it.  Hope this question is clear enough.  Thank you for any ideas that you may have.

Do you have flat-panel LCD monitors or large CRT monitors?

Most LCD monitors can be mounted on a universal "Vesa Mount" system.  Check the documentation on your monitors to determine which Vesa form-factor your monitors can connect onto, and then search for mounts of that size.  Make sure you get the correct size for your monitor, because there are many different sizes:

It is also very easy to homebrew a mount for a flat-panel display: just get some aluminum angle stock and metric screws matching the monitor. If you are trying to build into a specific cabinet, this can be easier that trying to buy a vesa mount.
