Why so much filler? I don't envy you when you start sanding. You should probably invest in a belt sander.

it really wasnt as thick as it looks. it wasnt bad at all to sand. at first i planned on doing a high gloss black. then decided to try veneering. then gave up from not getting the results i did on small scale practice. sound great...look insane.

I lied. I am back on the build. this weekend i got a good bit completed. I built 3 window cornices and put up the blackout curtains. Rebuilt the structure that will hold the screen. And made a french cleat system and mounted the screen up.

Remaining work to be done....

the screen got pretty banged up while i was refinishing the floor, so it needs a little fixing.
then paint screen. silver fire mixture is already mixed...did that this weekend also.
finish..finishing mini statement and statement center channel. took veneer off, cause it pissed me off mad.gif . skim coated with bondo again, working on leveling it back out for paint.
buy projector...awaiting B-stock arrivals wink.gif

This was my attempt at veneering. had good potential, but noob status ruined it. the seams look like garbage and there was residue from the tape that left a discoloration.











careful with the razor...



Window Cornice box...CHECK



Made 3. this is a crap photo of one. Had to shine a flashlight...dark in there biggrin.gif



And screen up

okay painted up the mini statements and center. they look like a bit of ass. after i scraped out the circles to get the mounting depth correct..obviously removed some paint mad.gif . so that will need to get fixed soon. but they sound pretty nice. once the snow dries up im gong to get the fullsize statements prepped and painted.
