Nice work! I really love your column design
Thanks Razor! I'm kind of winging it, lol, hope they turn out nice once covered up.

Re: Pimp My Garage

Got about 75% of my wall panel frames built and test fitted over the three day weekend (temporarily hung with a few drywall screws to test the fit and spacing between panels). Still need to create three more on the back wall, do the wall with the door to the closet, and then all the bottom panels, but not sure how high the carpet and pad will be, so hesitant to build those - although the bottom will be covered with molding, so maybe I don't need to worry, just make them a little short.

Re: Pimp My Garage

Nice work! I got a couple more of my panels covered yesterday

Are you doing anything special to build the panels? Are you just gluing and screwing?

It looks like you might be using ply that has been ripped down?

Cheers,
Simon

Thanks Simon - yes, I used 1/2" plywood ripped into strips. I used it first to create furring strips on the walls, liquid nailed and drywall screwed to the walls. Then two layers of plywood to make the frames - lap joints, brad nails, and liquid nails. I was originally thinking about making all the panels removable, using speaker grill ball/socket connectors - that's why the furring strips actually, so the sockets could be emdedded there - but now, hmm, not sure - would be nice to have them removable, but concerned about possible rattles or the wood warps and they start popping out. So I can either stay with those as planned, or use industrial velcro, or a combination, or just fire nails in and attach them permanently. Would be nice to have the option to be able to tweak the treatments after the fact.

Thanks Greg! Still undecided on fabric for the sides - looking at faux suedes, faux leathers, or ??? Fabric shopping is a pain.

Re: Pimp My Garage

I think suede would look very nice..I had some suede curtains in my theatre at one time and they did look classy!

You should be pretty right with ply. I wouldn't expect it to warp at all, especially if it's in a room that will have a pretty consistent temperature.

I've been surprised how well friction fit has gone with my panels. I have velcro there if I need it though.

A suede would look magic, but wouldn't that reflect too much of the high frequencies?

Cheers,
Simon

Re: Pimp My Garage

Actually Simon, it's the timber sides that will tend to reflect the HF's..The suede cloth will tend to absorb them a little..
