Question Max weight on sweated joints

Here is an off the wall question.

I have a design in mind for a funky entertainment center made of copper pipe and wood. My question is how much weight do you think a sweated joint can handle?

My design would be free standing with three legs and a tee underneath the wood - then a 27' TV sitting on top of that. Kind of like the letter A with a line midpoint of the - to the point of the A

Any advice would be helpful

Thanks,

I'd use 1" copper pipe. Smaller sizes would probably buckle.

Be sure to use brasso and then clear coat to keep it coppered colored.
