Im compensating for lack of speed with picture in this update.. I did manage to get past 2 items that had me spinning my wheels.. the hush box and the reveal on the bottom of the soffit..
For the past several months, only the front ~ 10ft of the soffits were started.
The rear still looked like this:
Once I built and mounted the hush box.. I finished the "boxes" for the rear soffits..
I also added these little, "side wings" for the hush box.. the intake air for the hush box comes in through the little vents in the bottom of the wings..
You can see on this side where I either missed measured or Mis cut the length of the side box and had to add a 1/2" spacer
Note: the hack job on the front lip of the hushbox.. had to scrap the front plate that held the glass from edmonds.. Ill remake it later..
Next I finished running the stone/crown/ and corbels around to the hush box..
Finished up another batch of wood....
Put up an 8" wide strip with a 2" reveal around the room..
I wanted to build up the front of the reveal to add a little "meat" to the bottom of the soffit .. so I added another piece of trim at the front edge
Then I used an 1 1/2" 1/2 round to finish off the front.. I lined it up with the cut in the other trim to get ~ 1/4 lip.. this worked out great for hiding the led strip without obscuring too much of the corbels..
Happy with the way this came out.. it makes for a nice clean line around the bottom...
Heres where it meets the side wing on the hush box
Notice the little panel in the side wing in the pic above..
Behind this is where I hid the transformer/controller for the RGB strips.
Still need to trim out the top of the hush box too..
Probably a list of reasons why I should not have done this.. but I divided the hush box into 2 compartments.. the rear one(shown without the divider) houses the "Cool Cube". I took this approach instead of building an access into the bottom of the soffits and placing it in there. Funny thing is since it moved the projector foward ~ 3 inches.. if I had done this first I wouldnt have needed to cut the front lip off of the box and scrap the portal plate..
The cool cube is dual speed, you can see the thermal sensor near where the exhaust for the projector is, it kicks it on automatically once temp get up.
Still lots to do inside the box. lining etc..
More to come eventually...
Movies by Christmas hopefully.... (yes Moggie.. This christmas!!
