We could not place the Atmos speakers exactly in the same corners due to the clips and channel and beams in the ceiling. One is offset by about 3 inches. They are equal distance front to back from the front center chair. 99% of the listening will be just the front row so they are optimized for the front row of seating.

We finished out the beams in the ceiling this weekend and went to Home Depot late yesterday to get the material for the stage and riser. Jeff's van was loaded down.

Yup... Another informative video. The pipe trick was brilliant. Great tips for when you are working alone.

Can you tell who did the cutting?
you need one of these.

you know I actually have one of those somewhere. It only cuts up to a diameter of 8 inches and from what I remember couldn't handle a double layer of 5/8 drywall, These were 12 inch holes.

Of all the photos, this one caught my eye.


I've always flipped the speed square over the other way. I may have to try it this way the next time to see if I like it better.

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

J_P_A just thought I would let you know that, using the square this way might not work. It all depends on the motor on your saw and depth your cutting. Some saws motors do not have the clearance to make it over the vertical lip of the speedsquare. If that's the case you can still put the speedsquare on that side of the board just on the other side of the saw.

I hope this makes sence.

I found this way works best on wide boards. This was a 2x12 and the other way for smaller wood. I also like the idea that my hand is behind the blade.

I can certainly see where this way has some advantages. I like to put my saw where I intend to cut then slide the square up to the foot. If you are using your thumb on the lip, I bet you can just push it over with your thumb. The other way is just how I was shown and I've never thought about it any further than that.

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

a few more hours on the riser. Had to actually draw the chairs on the floor to figure out the proper curve. Will need to put the hardwood finish plywood on front face before attaching step.
