Spline should hold up fine. I made a DIY AT curved screen with the track and spline method and it has held up fine over the years. Never needed to re-do it and tension seems to be just as good as the day I finished it.

Everything looks great btw.

Final Glass installed, sort of milked that one over a long time. Hopefully the wife gets it washed someday.

Its not complete, we are having test runs to get feedback and its a good thing, we have made changes each time and this time I think we have it nailed down as to what works before ordering carpet. We invited 15 people that had never met but thought they might like to try singing and stuff. Age 15, 22-30, 50, and 60 and I shot a little video while doing mic checks and messing with tweaks before the last people showed up. Only one person had really done any singing in front of people and it's probably obvious who.

We also decided to build our own seating, lots of great ideas flying around and we have demoed dozens of seating ideas and none are really perfect without sacrificing something, The wife is rolling her eyes on a newbie seamstress but we have faith in her. Anyone build their own seating yet and if so did you just make ultra thick fusions or web where the cushions go?

Cool idea but I've never seen it done. What kind of seats are you trying for ?

there was a thread a while back from a guy who built his own theater seating, maybe someone will remember.

Lets just say there is nothing like we want so hence probably making our own. We need places to set drinks but we don't want to be stuck with single seating like Berkliners, more like a Chair and a half which they have but you lose so much with every arm and Love Seats are the same story and we don't want flip down consoles nor recliner mechanisms. If we build our own we can take the room we lose with arms and turn those into very small tables for drinks and snacks and we think we can build 3 comfortable 1-1/2 chairs with 4 tables and still fit 2 people per seat including big people up to 6'3 250lbs ish from our testing with cheap walmart bean bags. I want to have an ottoman but I'm looking for more of something that either slides out from underneath electronically instead of recliner mechanism.

Also because of the shape of the risers the only way to maximize seating is building our own without going Berkliner which we don't like any we've seen or sat in. we've noticed most girls like to do the old curl up thing more than recline and the guys prefer reclining but only for movies. Personally I find I fall asleep at 95% of hollywoods movies if I recline but we think we know how to make cushions where a slight adjustment allows back reclining.

We're thinking about making the table tops out of this onyx

Nice find, it appears he's stopped replying, I would like to know if he really needed the strapping on the seats themselves

Getting ready to fire this back up, have got everything but carpet ( which I'm going to attempt after getting bids and one guy refusing to even attempt it)

Been pretty busy on an outdoor Pizza oven / Bar/ Wine Cellar / Patio / outdoor performance amphitheater type thing but its getting pretty tiring so I might have the wife start sewing pleats and go for ceiling finish since the weather is crappy

Theater build will continue Here http://dudecaves.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5

At my rate BIG, the Final, Final pics should show up around 2020. I find that room de-motivating after a couple days. Im still trying to get at least the Pizza oven built so it can cure but at least I spread out all over the place Fabric vs Vertical concrete and firebricks, I know which one sounds easier......the "fun" is running out on both

heres my latest project I went way overboard on going from square to circle http://dudecaves.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6
