Pg 6 - Screen and wall carpet w/chair rail
The screen is mounted! Next, I’ll temporarily setup the projector to confirm my seating position. After I do that I can mount the front speakers, run the snake and close up the false wall. I still have not designed the covers for the wall. All I know is that I’ll divide it into sections and velcro it to the framing.
I’ve confirmed my proposed seating position will be OK and have started working on completing the front of the theater. One of those things is black carpet on the walls to minimize light reflected back onto the screen and to help with reducing/eliminating first reflections. I had a local wood shop make some American Chestnut molding. Here the first pieces are mounted.
This shot shows the carpet glued - what a mess - to the wall and the cap molding piece in place hiding the edge of the carpet and matching the detail on the existing base molding.
3/30/04 - After building a computer for a friend, I’m back at work! This shot shows the American Chestnut chair rail/molding. The first "layer" is a little thicker than the carpet and will be used as a trim line. Glue will be spread and a large piece will be pressed in place. After the glue dries a bit, I will use a carpet knife to trim to the molding.
This shot shows the carpet glued and almost completely trimmed.
Here is the wall with the carpeting completed. The cap piece is next and will cover the somewhat ragged edge of the carpet.
