Time for an update. I'm pushing hard to have completion by the BCS game.

I took some old base board and crown and gave them a first coat of paint outside.

I installed the crown molding on the tops of the column and installed my sconces.

Next it was time to cover the speaker holes. I am going with something similar to mario or cinemar.

I ordered the parts-express frame kit and started cutting the frames with a jig saw with a small teeth blade. These were extremely easy to use and install. Instead of using magnets or the push in holes I have determined I will just snip off the holding pegs and month with a tight fit. It worked great and they are removable.

For the sides of the column I am stapling the GOM onto the sides since they are not removable. Both the fonts and sides will be trimmed out on the border.

done in time for the kids to play the wii

and more importantly, in time to enjoy my home made pork tacos
MMMMmmmmmmm taco's

Re: BamaBum Theatre Build

Have you tried using biscuits, for joining the wood together?..They work wonders with wood glue.

Re: BamaBum Theatre Build

B-one, The Tacos were Delish!

HorrorFan the 33rd, I had a biscuit joiner before but it got lost in the last move. I second the strength it adds. I keep saying I will buy a new one just after a task that required it but fail to before I start the next task.

forChrizzy, The theater is located on the second floor above the small garage. Between it and any bedroom is a future game room, office, and a long hall. Most room are down stairs at the other end of an L-shaped house. This combined with a few acres made sound proofing very easy - I just don't care about it as much as others. However I haven't put in the big subs yet.

I was able to get the sconces wired today and I had one of those proud papa moments again. Its the little things that really set off a room. My kids keep playing on the random rolling ottoman. I might have to keep it but have it covered in the same material as the seats.



I have been very disappointed with the small perimeter LED lights. I am just not a fan of the white light. I bought very small ones and have a dimmer but even on the lowest I don't care for them. I might try to put a lens on them or something.

The new sconces are incandescent lights and they are so much nicer. They put such a great feel to the room. Also I have noticed the screen looks so much better than when using the perimeter LEDS.

These were taken from the same angle on a paused screen. The Incandescent is so much easier on the screen. I am not sure how much upward or downwards facing makes in the equation. You can really see the difference in the red truck and brown jacket.

The Uplight and Downlight text are switched , the LED is DOWN and Incand UP. THE LED IS ON LEFT.



Time to iron my favorite shirt for tomorrow!

Re: BamaBum Theatre Build

I really like how your theater is coming together. I love your layout and front stage. The side lights add a really nice touch.
