I intend to use four eye screws, pictured, to hang a wood-framed mirror. The mirror is about 44"x32".
But installing four eye screws (two on the bottom, one on each side, with a cable running through them, finished with a pair of L-shaped 2" screws in a wall stud) makes me unsure the 4 eye screws would be reliable for the 20lb weight.
And so I'd like to use some kind of "platform", sort-of like the one pictured below, that attaches with four screws and that has built-in some kind of loop, similar to the eye screws. I'm guessing that 16 screws would be enough for twice the weight of the mirror—a good safety margin.
A cable wire would then wrap around the four connection points and provide good support. I'd turn the cable into a loop with the contraption pictured below.
What kind of "platform" do I need, and what kind of screws would work?
The solid-wood frame is just shy of 3/4" (17mm) thick, and the frame is of an unknown grain, as pictured below. The only constraint being, to state the obvious, the screws cannot protrude from the face of the frame.
