Cool, secret doors. Can you show a little more detail on your secret doors, especially how they are hinged. Thanks.

HERE IS THE FIRST SECRET DOOR INTO THE MEDIA ROOM - FROM THE KIDS LIBRARY-
IT IS BASICALLY JUST A CLOSET DOOR ON A NORMAL SLIDING RAIL THAT SLIDES INTO THE BACK OF THE BOOKCASES. IT ENDS UP HITTING A BUMPER PREVENTING IT FROM GOING ALL THE WAY INTO THE BACK OF THE BOOKCASES.

THIS IS THE SECOND SECRET DOOR FROM MY OFFICE INTO MY WORKSHOP.
THE SHELF BOX WAS MADE FIRST THEN I FRAMED OUT THE DOOR TYPE FRAME TO ALLOW IT TO OVERLAP THE SHELVES.

BEFORE ATTACHING THE HINGES I BOUGHT 6 SWIVEL CASTERS AND NEGOTIATED THE HEIGHT WITH A LAYER OF WOOD TO MAKE SURE I HAD GOOD CLEARANCE THE SWIVEL CASTERS ROLL AND WILL RELIEVE THE BURDON OF THE WEIGHT ON THE HINGES ONCE ATTACHED . THEN ONCE I COULD ROLL THE SHELF IN AN OUT OF PLACE
I ATTACHED THE REGULAR DOOR HINGES IN PLACE

THEN I ATTACHED THE MAGNET TO HOLD IT CLOSED IT WORKS FLAWLESSLY AND LOOKS JUST LIKE NORMAL SHELVES IN MY OFFICE

No pics are needed. They're probably cable rips downloaded from the net.I know because I have the same. YES, once they are released on BD I will purchase all of them but this is the best until then.

The DVD's look horrible compared to the 1080i cable rips.

Subbing.....Yes, the movies I found where on the net (1080p versions), much better than any DVD. I am also the one when Epidode I came out on Video, it was only available on VHS (remember?) I picked up, from Japan, the laserdisk, $142 at the time but, I was the only one you can find at the time with Episode I in DD 5.1.... I still have my CLD-99 tho.

I will buy them all on Blu-ray when released, looking forward to them as they will look better (less compression, I hope).

I love the theme, I've always been a Star Wars Junkie (seen them in the theater as a kid as well)

ME TOO!!!!!!!!!!!! That was great at the time!!! While everyone else was watching the movie with Stereo sound (if they had a HiFi VCR), we had Episode 1 not only with the best video presentation at the time, but also DD 5.1!! Alot of friends were envious!!

The only thing that I didn't like was that the disc had Jap subtitles that I could not shut off.

Yea, 5.1 baby (I was working in a Hi-Fi store at the time, I was begged by my manager to bring in the disc for a demo for a high end client).

Same here when I showed people the "pod" race in 5.1 (Side 2 on the LD one of the 1st scenes), it would just blow them away.

Incase anyone here did not have the chance to own this awsome LD...here are some pics...it's from my cell, sorry...

Your craftsmanship is stunning. I love all the secret doors and how the back wall is coming along. Very cool indeed.

I have built the frame for the AT AT hard to visualize seeing it will all be painted in the end with lighting and shading. I am still working out some design elements on the top of the frame and below. I may paint it first to see what would go along with it before I progress. Judging from my sketch it looks off, I might do another frame, Ill have to think about that.
