Yah-yah! I have broad shoulders. ;-)

All I'm doing is assembling wine racks. The Abaco wood is so hard that the pin nails barely go through without deflecting! Now I am grinding the chisel end flat so it cuts through. It's working! Surprised the distributor.

Looking good my friend!

A typical joint when finished is about 16" wide with mud to get a smooth transition over the tape. This is done with a 10" trowel on both sides of the tape for the third coat, pressing firm with the trowel to leave only a very thin layer of mud (maybe 2 mm down to nothing on the outside edge and over the thin previous layer on the tape...so 2 mm in the middle of the tape joint and the feathered edge 8" out from the tape on both sides). Unless there is an obvious bump in the mud, I don't sand until after the third coat...if you are going that far...

Actually, aren't you putting your paper mache sound diffusers on the wall? So this is far enough, except for any areas that will be exposed.

Correct. Except for the gap for the third side surround speaker there will be diffusors. Probably there will be wall below them as well. Though how much will be exposed I don't know yet.

Thank you.

Who said I wanted to? It's just one of those things I ended up having to do.

Some areas needed more touchup, but I expect to call it quits on the walls and the ceiling in the cinema part later today. The ceiling in the machinist room is behind in the schedule, taped the longitudinal seams yesterday, have three across to tape so that won't complete until around the weekend, I guess. But it looks set for painting to start tomorrow (if paint looks alive still when I open the lid on it, that is...).

Taping doesn't have to be pretty as I assume you're hanging treatments........you can easily hide mistakes with texture by why?

When my room was drywalled I stated 5-6 times no texture. What did I get? Texture!!!!!

Well, honestly I haven't measured and marked where they are going, so I'm treating it all the same.

I think texture is a benefit if you want as deep dark as possible from the paint, as it definitely go more dark where in "shade", so I'm definitely doing texture. Sorry you got one, though.

Cinema part all black now. Two out of three walls are mudded close to definitive state. Ceiling ongoing. This part need a basic ok state so I can move things back; only then can I start fixing with the ceiling diffusion in the cinema part.

Have recieved a number of carpet samples the last few weeks, so now I have decided which one - If it's still available when I can finance it, that is.

The only stuff that's still to be there is the chairs and they fit up or down while either part gets laid. The stuff will go into the machinist side, up into the attic - or thrown away. The problem right now is that I'm doing both sides of the wall at the same time. The chairs do take up quite a lot of space, just like they will when the cinema is done, but when in their correct positions it won't look as bad.

Thanks. I read someone ordered 5-6 layers, I'm stopping at 3-4 as good enough, but I realize at 5-6 I could get it prodessional looking as well, but the extra money for those layers can be better spent.
