Re: Tommy's HT In-Progress

Now for the really hard part, selling my beloved BenQ.

Considering I've only used the pj for about 6 months (less then 500hrs on bulb) plus original cost, acessories & recent ISF calibration I figure I'll probably lose 3-4 thousand dollars selling it compared to what I paid for it and hopefully it wont be more then that...

Hello:

Yes it was a place called allposters.com, I didnt really comparison shop when I got then so there may be better deals elsewhere. I know the wife doesnt like a couple of the ones we have and wants me to replace them already. Are there any specific ones your looking for?

Not really, I haven't talked to the boss about it yet so.... I would have just done it but I've seen what your wife says and that's making me think "This may have to be a team decision".

I was just looking for a recommendation. My walls are a bit bare at the moment other that some Minnesota Wild Hockey memorabilia. Plus I've seen a lot of people do this and I've always thought it looked cool.

Oh ya she was ****** (about that too) when I ordered the posters and didnt ask her which ones she wanted. I was like do you even care about movie posters and got the whole it would have been nice to ask type ... As you can see, I'm a firm believer in the "its easier to as for forgivness; then it is to ask for permision" philosphy

Frames can get very expensive, and I dont see much reason to paying more for them. Plus delivery on line for something that big coule be very expensive. I would definetly suggest the cheaper frames at Michaels. They usually go on sale for like 50% off once a month, wait for then...

As I said the wife wants to change a few of the ones in are room so if ya want to trade for something (movies or what ever) let me know. I know she doesnt like the king kong one and also the braveheart one. I remember buying a fifth one also that is still in the tube but cant even remember what it is at the moment

Re: Tommy's HT In-Progress

I'm thinking along the lines of like a Casablanca, Star Wars, Gone with the Wind, etc. What I'd really like is that Jack Nicholson - The Shining Poster. But I know momma won't like that...

May be a week or so, before I converse with my better half and get back to you, but I'll let you know one way or the other regarding King Kong and Braveheart.

Hey Tommy, new to the shack and your thread, so I just jumped from the beginning of your thread to the end to check out the finished product. Nice job! Bet you're logging a lot of hours on that lamp. Congrats!

Bud

Re: Tommy's HT In-Progress

Thanks Bud

wow 114 pages on your thread. That certainly has humbled this old thread

I started to look but dont have that much time today. Is there a summary some where I would like to get a chance to though, I am interested in doing something almost exactly similar to your ticket window pictures. Did you do it from scratch or was it a kit to be ordered?

I'm not sure if I've blogged this here previously or not or if you have already completed something like this yourself. But I did create a light box, similar to your theater picture on your first posts to your thread and hung it above the door outside the HT room. It came out really good and only took perhaps an hour or two and 30 bucks.

Re: Tommy's HT In-Progress

Hey Tommy. That thread took on a life of its own!

If it helps, I went back and created an index for my thread in the first post. There are some links there in regards to the ticket window. I built it from scratch, no real plans, except for a basic layout in MS paint and the dimensions for the plexiglass. I did however take a bunch of pictures as I built it and put it in an album that may help you. I've done a few poster lightboxes myself and they're in the same album as the ticket window.

Happy to help with anything, let me know if you have an questions.

Bud
