Got the Star Ceiling up tonight
Not as elaborate a R00sters, Sandmans or Switheys but me likes it.
1st cut an ellipse in a 4'x8' piece of 1/4" Ply
I added framing on the back to provide room for fibers, keep ply stiff and to attach to ceiling.
Painted it black and covered with speaker fabric
I mapped out the Eastern Sky in Winter and routed the fibers. Used a glue gun the keep fibres in place. Word of warning here - the hot glue melted the fibers - had to use a cold hair dryer to rapid dry glue
Used drywall lift to raise to the ceiling and routed the fibers thru previous installed conduit. In this pic you can see one of 2 L brackets used to attach to the ceiling (its very light).
And here it is with the Rope lights....can anyone spot the ORION constellation ?
Still needs a few finishing touches......
