Stage and Riser
First you start with some 2x12s and 2x10s. Build it away from the wall and you can run your framing gun in from the backside. Leave one end on the front 2x12 and you can lift and drag the first big section to the wall easier (NYGF23 was at work)
Bang on the front
make the remaining section and drag into place and secure to the first section.
Check the level and shim as required
Add mid span supports to make it more solid
Wire it up
add two layers of 3/4 material with either GG or roofing felt between layers.
Round the edgesStage
, we set out to build the AVS all to frequent two level rounded stage and when I pulled out my bendy board to mock up the curve NYGF23 said "do we have to make it curved?". We sat down and looked at the show me your stage thread and concluded that the answer is NO. http://www.avsforum.com/t/994029/post-your-stage-photos-here-thanks/0_40#post_17706313
The board is laying in the approximate position of the screen wall.
I left this afternoon leaving NYGF23 with a homework assignment to transport 60 or so bags of sand and fill it up, Next week I return to put on the top and complete some other items.Edited by BIGmouthinDC - 5/16/13 at 7:09pm
