Thanks - this really is great stuff! Very addicting. I just watched the video as well.

I used 2x2s and MDF
Each step was about 5 inches tall.
The other dimension was based on what it took to fit the ductwork.

For the Linacoustic are you using 1/2" or 1" for the panels?

How about the front wall?

1"
1" There was very little area left on the front wall, normally I would like 2 inches on the entire front wall but the screen was wall mounted.

OK so there were these empty spaces in the theater begging for some Objects d'art.

Some assembly required

Ready to putty, sand, prime, and paint.

Onevoice2 needs to pick the color.

i personally have "borrowed" bits and pieces of big's builds and also Mario's both of which are very gracious and willing to help and answer all ?'s but if you get the privilege to have big actually work on your build then there is no doubt you will end up with something very very nice.... i have seen some of his work up close and it was his place that he did when he was young and uninformed so he says ...not me and it is a site to see....

I can be had for the right price. But I only do an original design once, it will have to be different in some way.

Last post I finished banging together the Pilasters. Next was to paint them. I bought a cheap HVLP paint sprayer (Graco 2900) thinned the paint as directed and sprayed the pilasters black (Behr Ultra flat enamel) when they dried I took a fine foam roller and carefully painted just the top surface of the raised design. I was really happy with the HVLP painter.

Today I went over to install the pilasters and a cabinet for storage (unfinished oak from Lowes stained black). and my SUMMER FUN is over.

Some FINAL PICTURES in no particular order.

I knew you would come over to the dark side and hang up the paint brush. The theater looks awesome.

Jeff, does the layout look familiar? I relied heavily on the basic layout from your place except no false wall for the screen, Just not enough room.

On the HVLP sprayer it worked like a champ the beauty is that there are very few parts to clean, no hose to clean. The overspray was minimal and I just sprayed them all on my workbench with a sheet of plastic. My problem was all those nooks and crannies that would have been impossible with a brush required quite of few turns of each piece and a lot of angling of the gun to shoot into every corner, But it worked and I'm going to keep in in my truck.

Jaw dropping. Another Big masterpiece!
Would love to see some more pics with can lights off.

That looks awesome BIG!

I love that column design. It really adds a nice touch to the room.

I concur on all of your positive remarks regarding the 2900 sprayer. I love mine as well.
post #176 of 227
Those are simply amazing.. Now you need to start designing different ones and selling them off .. Im sure there would be a list

What kind of speakers were used for this build?

Also - is there a list of the AV equipment used?
