3/17/19 Acoustic Fabric Wrapping Complete
Yesterday afternoon as I was working, I told myself that would finish the fabric this weekend, and I’ve done it! 45,000 staples later, I have finished wrapping all 28 panels.
I am so incredibly happy with how this room looks. The two trickiest parts for me were the rear bar with the surface mount outlets and the switch cut-outs near the entrance door. I would like to make the switch cut-outs look better, but I’m drawing blanks with my creativity at the moment. I’m probably gonna leave it the way it is unless I have a light bulb moment. The rear bar surface mounts I am extremely happy with - I think they look super sharp.
The GOM fabric I used was extremely forgiving, and and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend it.
If anyone is considering a stapling task even half of this magnitude, please do yourself a favor and purchase the porter cable pneumatic stapler; holy crap that thing is a work horse!! On the topic of the stapler, you must treat it like a weapon, seriously. Don’t point it at anything you wouldn’t want to harm, because it will shoot the staples regardless of whether you have it pressed up against a surface or not. I might have had one or a dozen safety moments with it. Wear eye protection.
Technically speaking, I still need to build and wrap frames for the door, atmos speakers, and subwoofer enclosures under the rear counter, but that will come at a later time.
It’s time to build some speakers.
