Good progress, eyekode. And for the record, your rack looks like it would have come out great! I probably would have stuck with it, but maybe that's just me and my love of nice wood. Keep it up!

Thanks the wood rack did turn out great! And I can always use the extra space so I am glad I have both!

Re: Dual purpose bonus room HT

A little more progress: I began the trim/crown lighting.

The plan is to run LED rope lighting around the perimeter of the soffit. Here is a cross sectional view:


I don't have any help so I built a simple jig to hold the molding at the desired height (1.5" up from the edge):




The molding was hung with brads first and then when everything looked good I used 15ga nails to make it rock solid.

After the molding went up I ripped some 2x4 stock at 38 degrees to hold the crown:


And here is where I am now:


I plan on painting the top of the ledge up to the ceiling in a flat white paint. Then I will hang the crown. But I am quite worried about all the inside corners. Most say to cope inside corners (of which I have 8 in this room!) but that would interfere with the LED light unless I also left some clearance for it.

This is also the first time I have done crown and I am a little worried that I will do a job trying to miter all those inside corners!

Wish me luck .

Re: Dual purpose bonus room HT

Some bad news . My washing machine flooded my downstairs and filled my HVAC with water. 80% of my hardwoods are ripped up. And all the stuff in the pantry has been moved into my someday-to-be-theater!

But I do have one progress update. I bought some 12v SMD5050 RGB tape light to play with. Mostly because I could not decide between white and soft white 120v rope light. And I am glad I did! I really like RGB control. Now I cannot decide if I want red or blue . And I don't have to! I will lose the cool dimming effect the Lutron provides for scenes but I will gain the ability to change colors on a whim.

And those SMD5050's are really bright! Only real downside is the 12v tape max length is 5M. So I need 3 tapes 18A at 12v (I will use 3 6A power supplies). And (at least) 2 data repeaters. This is much more wiring then just plugging in a single 120v rope. But the end effect should be really cool.

Google "Wixey wr300". Well worth the cost !!
Make sure your throat plate is dead level with the table too. Otherwise the accuracy of the angle finder doesn't matter!
