Stage

This shows the framing of the stage. I did not fill the stage with sand, just insulation. Haven't had any problems with it. It's not attached to the walls, just sits there. It is about two inches from the screen wall so cable can be run behind it.

Stage

Rough completion of the stage. You can also see my two new toys. A Klipsh center speaker and 15" subwoofer.

Columns

Construction of the columns begins. These are the bases and caps in progress. There are six columns. Their frames are 2x2s with OSB panels topped with a section is 2x6.

Columns

Next step are some oak-trim corner pieces. This went really quick thanks to a pneumatic nail gun!

Columns

The main section of the columns are two pieces of crown molding. Unfortunaly I found I didn't take any pictures of their construction.

Columns

When the house was built, the theater was wired for three sconce lights on each side. The columns are placed over these. I put light sockets on the backs of the columns and wired them in for the back lighting.

Columns and Trim

Here you can see the trim has gone in. The trim was also used to complete the bases and caps for the columns. This is really cheap pre-finished trim. It has been sanded since it will be painted.

A better picture of the trim.

Columns and Trim

The columns are free standing and attached to the wall only at the top with brackets. The trim holds them side to side, and the carpet will eventually hold them from coming away from the wall.

Partial but Usable

Beginning to shape up. The two major things remaining here are painting the columns and carpet. Another change is the front speaker is now in its shelf rather than sitting on a Klipsh box.

Trim Paint

Paint is going on the trim and columns. This is a grey sanded paint. The columns and trim end up looking a bit like stone.
