My DIY home theater chairs. - Page 3

post #61 of 85
You are a beast , super nice workmanship.
post #62 of 85
These are fantastic!!

That's very awesome. Wish I had the patience and tools to tackle a project like that. I doubt many can say their home theater seats are DIY (at least, ones that look like that). Very cool

wow! I was expecting a suped up lawn chair. Unbelievable job.
post #65 of 85
This looks tougher than throwing a no hitter...unREAL!


And you are nuts. How do people react when you say you made the chair they are sitting in?
post #66 of 85
Wow. Amazing job! I too am curious where the mechanisms come from. I am pretty sure I have no where near the skill needed to make even the arm rests as well as you did. This is definitely the most impressive build I have seen on here!
post #67 of 85
To say that I am impressed would be quite the understatement. Beautiful!

I just saw a story about this on another site with a slideshow, but not nearly this many pictures. It looks really great. Good job!
post #69 of 85
I might have missed it but would you mind telling us where you sourced the mechanisms from?

Thanks!

Big Congrats on make it in the January 2012 Electronic House magazine.

Your seats and Theater look awesome!!!

I saw that too this month in Electronic House and I was really upset because the article didn't give this job enough credit. A few more pics of the progress would have been nice. I mean he cut the leather and suede himself!

I read through and could have missed the posting, but I'd really like to know where you got the recliner mechanisms? This is an AWESOME project, but if one can't get those it's a dud. I've found similar parts on Alibaba, but usually they only sell in the 10s of 1000s of parts.
post #73 of 85
Agreed, this has to be one of the best build posts I've read. I'd love to know where I can get the parts for this build. I'd like to try the prototype one you built, with manual recline.

Kudos sir. Quite a show of craftsmanship!

Very impressive. Need a job? We're always looking to hire skilled people.
post #76 of 85
one of the most impressive thing on this forum.

thanks.
post #77 of 85
Nice job on the design and engineering. I see many questions on this thread on where to get the seat mechanism. I got a quote from alibaba.com for $60 ea. for a D421 motorized recliner mechanism.
post #78 of 85
Have you ever been able to buy anything on that site and actually get it? What was the minimum order. I guess the original poster is mum with the supplier...
post #79 of 85
That is awesome....

Very impressed. I also have woodworking skills for fine furniture but never did something like this. Maybe in the future.


BTW i have a question, does heated seating a value for home theaters? i see kits like

Wow. Just, wow!




Great job, I'm impressed beyond words.
post #81 of 85
I am very impressed by your DIY seats. I never thought about building the seats, but after seeing this thread, I am tempted.

So, thats why I second SuperTals request:

If you're not conditioning the space enough to provide decent heat, what about cooling for airconditioning the rest of the year? Granted, a below-grade room would probably stay cooler, and be colder to heat, so there's that to consider. We added a second zone to our basement system to allow conditioning the space properly.

That and I'm not sure your bottom is the place that's likely to be the coldest in a theater room. Heating a cold car seat is one thing, as it's likely going to have dropped down to the same temp as the outside air at night. But a theater inside the house shouldn't see that same kind of temp difference. And then you're also faced with having to add an electrical source to the chairs, if it's not already present.

If you are looking for these you will have more success googling using the name most commonly used in the furniture industry: "recline mechanism" or "power recline mechanism."

Here is the largest manufacturer of them, Leggett and Platt:
