Great job on the Fabric Panels so far. Thank you for not posting picks of your bathroom work because I think it is not appropriate for members to get into that stuff on here. Great use of judgement regarding that. Just to confirm, you used the Insul-Knife to cut your Acoustical Cotton? I know that Damelon sent his to you but I was not sure what kind.
Can you provide a pick of where your electrical outlet is for your RGB LED Rope light in both the riser and the Tray Ceiling? I know you mentioned it before but I did not see a final pic of your Electrical Outlets for those rope lights (not the columns).
Also, what color paint did you use for those Fabric Panel frames (what color black)?
I have to admit that the use of fabric on a cylinder shaped column stretches my mind beyond anything and makes me re-think everything possible about column design!!!!!!!! Just WOW!!!!!!!!!!!
I would have been stupid and clueless and spent $$$$$$ on a prebuilt cylinder for column but thanks to your sharing here with that............... I am inspired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What kind of seating to you imagine your self getting in the future?
Thanks! Wish I could get back to building them but I have to finish the rest of the basement first before I dive back into frames.
I can't say that I haven't posted off topic pics before nor that I won't in the future. I enjoy all aspects of building so checking out someone's non-theater related build pics interests me. Sounds like they don't interest you. To each their own.
I will see if I can get some pics up for you. I have to take the screen down to install my speaker stands so I should have access to the one for the tray ceiling this weekend.
Are you talking about the black paint that I threw on the frames so that the wood wouldn't show through? It is Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black in flat. It is stuff I had leftover from painting the ceiling.
Glad I could help inspire on the column design front. I really liked Sandman's round columns but didn't like the cost of materials he used. My method, with a little trial and error, seemed to work pretty well and the material costs were much lower. They also ended up being more durable then I could have hoped. I was afraid the edges would be weak or that the middle could be dented easily but after I completed my first one those fears went away. Once I get the middle section complete I think they will really look sharp.
Right now I have my eye on some modular furniture from Lovesac called sactionals. I really like their movie lounger setup for my front row and probably a 5 series row of 4 across the back. My wife and I are more into comfort and these play right into that. They also have a ton of fabric choices so hopefully I can find something besides black that will work in my room. Unfortunately due to the work I have in the rest of the basement and the overall cost of this type of furniture means that I won't be picking it up anytime soon. Unless they have a really good sale around black Friday or Christmas and then all bets are off.
