Youthman's LaScala Trio Home Theater Build (Version 2.0) Begins!

Recommended Posts

All of the wood was Rough Cut Red Oak that had to be planed.  That's a whole lot of sawdust!

I think this will be a descent upgrade from my 103" screen. :D

The Doric style columns are spectacular and a great touch. Being a Mason I enjoy such things.

Thanks, we have columns in the front of our house, in our foyer and in our master bedroom so Shaun thought it would be a nice touch to tie the room into the rest of the house decor.

Shaun put the columns in his HT "to keep them safe".....I think he likes them so much that he wants to keep them for his room.  LOL

Wow! Thanks for sharing the pictures - the step by step creation of the columns really shows the skill and detail that go into project like this.  I can't wait to see the final result.

The columns apparently took a long time. Check it out....they are even tapered too!

Oh yeah!  Just received these photos from wakejunkie.  :D  From render to reality!

 

The screen frame has been equipped with these Mighty Lift Supports (Model # 3435 36314) to provide easy access behind the screen.  Man it's super exciting to see this all coming together.

The To Do List is getting smaller!

The original gas shocks were putting too much outward pressur on the frame when closed so they welded new brackets today.

I'm still working out the details.  I have a friend at church who has a 20' enclosed trailer.  Would have been great if he had an enclosed trailer.  I could then fly up, then ride back.  Still a lot to figure out.

I just got to say..... Nothing impresses me more than when a Dad teaches one of his children the joy of working with their hands. Some of the best memories I have of my late father are of building things together. Great job building the theater. And great job building memories.

G.E.M
