    how to create a knife bevel

    It's complex modeling, but I would use Sub-Division. You might able to do it with a series of Solid Subtractions, but it would be a challenge.

    mapping a decal onto 4 plasma screens

    The tool is in the Spotlight tool set. You can also purchase it as a stand alone. I've found it very valuable for a long time. Your solution does seem, to work, but I would show flat monitors on the wall for accuracy.
