So far it's just been a review. I've asked for a quote to modify my existing plan and provide an ATMOS layout.

You and I both!

I'll see how things pan out for you............seems customer service ranks high with Nyals.......that would be refreshing.

That has certainly been my experience so far. I'm really looking forward to working with him.

A question for all you MDF assembling pros out there. For my column construction, can I use regular wood glue (Titebond II) and finishing nails to hold my columns together until the glue dries, or do I need to use PL and clamps? I'm using 3/4" MDF and I'm planning to use lap joints.

Yes, use Titebond II and finishing nails. A few well-placed clamps will also help if you have 'em.

What Tim said. +1.

Either will work. Tightbond II is good choice, but it's got a shorter working time. PL is great, probably overkill but it's got a nice long working time and it's thick enough to stay put where you want it. Once either dries it's all good. Whichever you like better. Tightbond can get cleaned with water so that's a big advantage IMO.

Great! I may need to add a few more clamps to my tool kit. I've only got a couple.

As always, I appreciate the advice!

Harbor Fright.....cough......Freight has great clamps for $7-8. Don't get the $3-4 version.......no holding power!

Another note, I wished I would have used Titebond III. Longer dry time but dries clear......just a heads up.

Good tips! I'll grab another bottle of glue. Unfortunately, we don't have a harbor freight nearby or I'd buy a 5 or 6 of them.

So true !

The grip squeeze style clamps are akin to the lumber at HomeDepot, everything left available is picked through and 80% of the inventory is not good! One out of 5 might have enough holding power to defy gravity for a few minutes but none will be acceptable. The screw kind of clamps that have the sliders that bite into grooved metal are WAY better and worth the $2 more. I learned the hard way.

Thanks! We'll see hoe it goes and I'll let you know if I need to borrow them.

How goes your build? Both the house and the theater?

10 clamps shipped is only $50 ($6 shipping)

What is your zip code ?

http://www.harborfreight.com/24-inch...amp-96213.html

I just threw in 10 of the 24" clamps but you could get bigger or smaller or a few of each whatever you needed. I was just wondering about shipping. Seems like a good deal.

We moved into the house last weekend. Things are crazy right now trying to get unpacked and little things here and there that have to be done. I was hoping to get started on the theater in the next month or so but there is still so much to do and things to buy for the house. We are glad to be in though.
