Approximately 30' x 16' x 9'. Coffers are 6" deep.

You sure that's not just big egg carton?

Looks awesome. Wish I had the room....

Wow is right. I have a roughly 6.5' x 17' 14" deep "boring" tray ceiling.

I am just finishing HT 1.0. Maybe version 7.0 can include something remotely similar to that. Man, I have to stop reading these posts. 10 minutes ago I really liked my tray ceiling...

Nice one Dennis, thanks heaps for posting a finished version of it. Looks great.

Elill ... we could build one upside down and ship it to you.

That'll take all the fun of me building one!...my tastes in timber (namely high grade Australian hardwoods) will likely prohibit it however due to cost. That and limited ceiling height (2400mm), though I am trying to work up one that is 100mm in depth...more plans I need to get out of my head and onto paper.

Whilst these ceilings look complicated they are really rather simple once you get it going...just lots and lots of little bits that need cutting identically - the tricky bit (made easy with a Kapex for those in the know). I've made one from pine mouldings in the past for a kitchen (painted).

Anyway enough ramble, love the room, it looks smaller in the pictures though. What an awesome space it'll become!

Incredible....

Wow- maybe I'll do this rather than a star ceiling That the door in the picture weighs 400 lbs? I was assuming that it would look a little more substantial!

The type of pictures I'm looking for; to get ideas. You never know, this may be a DIY project in the future.

Thank you Dennis.

Awesome design! If I had another foot of ceiling height I would love to do something like that in my theater.

Is that standard Peg Board?

No, Don. It is a patented product called Perf-sorber. It functions as both a diffusor and absorber. It is available from Quest Acoustic Interiors (www.questai.com) and is a part of their "Acoustic Lens" product which has had some rave reviews of late. I've heard (and measured) the results...excellent.

That is a beautiful room Dennis. What wood is that?

Solid African Mahogany.

Sorry to correct you Dennis, but I believe the correct spelling is $olid African Mahogany.
post #53 of 105
Obviously, no expenses spared with this room. Simply stunning!
post #54 of 105
That's going to be beautiful and sound even better!

Will they be hiring a cleaning person to Pledge all that wood? Or do you figure that into their bill as well?

I imagine Dennis has spec'd the LFE to handle any issues of dust settling.

It took about a week in the shop to do all the fabrication.

We're doing a full step by step photo journal on the construction for publication.


Yo Dennis, Any updates, pics, and the publication?
Thx.
