Doug's "No Name" Theater/Gaming Room - Page 5

Putting in a bar is phase 3; so you can get an idea of how useful it will be to put up a flat panel on the wall I have sketched out above.
NOTE: The bar is a very ugly rough sketch just for getting feel for location and perspective

I vote for your stealth closet idea w/LCD. Not sure how you would implement the hatch/hinge thing, but based on your other woodworking results I'm sure it will turn out great.
post #123 of 366
I like the shallow wall unit design. Very nice!

If the closet is just standard depth, why not just build the lower and upper dvd storage units fixed? The center panel/tv could be hinged to swing out using heavy duty door hinges (with ball bearing races). If the closet is occassional use, and the tv were bigger, you could simply leave a cutout behind the tv and do an articulating swing mount and have the tv act as the door.

Why not just hinge the whole thing. You would need to beef up the hinge side to be able to handle the weight of the swinging cabinet but I think its vary doable.

I did start this thread a while ago to generate some specific feedback.

I think I will look into those Soss Hinges.


If I can get away with hinging the entire thing, I will do that. My only concern is that it might sag. I also have carpet installed in front, so I am not to thrilled about putting a caster on the bottom as that will wear into the carpet (even with minimal use, I would think).

Found these guys...wonder if you could get a peek at their designs.

I need some help/ideas on how to finish off the bottom of this cabinet. I really dont want to do the same colonial base molding that I have on my other walls, but I really cant see to find anything. There must be something I can do to really keep to the appeal of the cabinet. Any ideas?



Ignore the outlet...I have to still have to fix this.
post #129 of 366
Instead of a regular base molding you could use a lower profile crown molding and invert it for a more decorative look at the bottom. Something like this or this might work for you application.

I agree that wood work as nice as yours needs a little something extra over just regular base molding.

Regards,

Why not just minick the upper 3/4" thick surface with the same overhang, at the base. Your cabinetry lines are very clean and could stand on their own merit without needing embelishment of kick trim.

Tedd, thanks for this idea....do you mean like this? (except wrapped all the way around the base of the entire cabinet)

I had some left over oak veneer plywood and molding that I used on my panel/frames on the cabinet and came up with this....(what do you think)?



post #134 of 366
I think it will be great - especially because you already have it! Go for it!

I am really happy how this turned out.

I put moulding on the base and up top just under the lip.

It looks complete and completely custom too.

That is one of the things on the top of my to do list however things have slowed down tremendously since its warm out. I built a large deck last summer and I have some things to finish on that plus about 17 tons of pea gravel to haul to the back yard sometime soon. Also its baseball season and I coach my sons team so that is going to eat alot of my time from now til July when it ends. So long answer short......soon I hope

Sometimes I think that front projection 100+ inch screens are meant strictly for Hockey!

I thought it would be appropriate to show a gaming pic since the title of my thread implied the use of my room would include gaming.

Although, I still have yet to settle down and play a good first person shooter such as Call of Duty.


I still have to master the lighting settings on my camera.

The couches are in game mode Normally they are positioned differently for Movie mode.

Doug,

Excellent photo of a truly relaxing environment you have created. It's great to see a HT actually being enjoyed!, instead of being built

This photo is helping me with a decision my wife and I have been debating:

>> She wants a sofa, or loveseat(s) for seating.
>> And up until now (I thought) I wanted Theater Chairs, Hmm......

Thanks.

In our case, we both would like to eventually get the theater seating...maybe even build a riser. However, there are times that I am glad we dont have the theater seats/riser as we can have the flexibilty when needed. Especially at bigger gathers such as the super bowl.

I know its a bad pic, but my wife and I kind of took a split on that debate:



and went with a love seat, couch, chair combo thing.

As always Doug, Love the wood working.

I just googled it (the Chairs). Try this, I think it is the same one.

Kezug - awesome woodwork. For the tops of the cabinets, how did you do it? It seems too wide to be a solid wood plank. Is it veneered plywood with edging, laminated MDF? Looks really nice.
