Been Workin'

Recommended Posts

on my listening room.  It was my workshop out behind my house, and I gathered free 3' x 4' plywood scraps for the interior walls.  Really rugged, but so disjointed that I couldn't paint or anything.

 

Bright idea....

 

Add 1" x 4" pine boards stained walnut as wainscoting and use painted paneling as in-between wall, attached directly to the plywood.  This only brought the wall out 1/8 inch or so in the panel area, and meant I didn't have to move the Klipschorns in the process.

 

Here's what it looks like tonight.  I embedded a 2' x 4' LED ceiling fixture ("troffer" is the term) into the wall, which is dimmable.  I then put a vinyl stained glass cling onto the back of a piece of plexiglas and framed around it like a window.  Those wall hangings are old Klipsch ads.

 

What do you think?

This is that same corner, same Klipschorn, before the makeover:

The radio is a family heirloom.  Built by my grandfather.  The whiskey is too.  That was the "medicinal whiskey" in the cabinet.  When my parents passed away and my sisters were cleaning out the house, I had the presence to ask them to find it and save it for me.  It had evaporated but I think it looks nice on the Klipschorn.

Here's one of the ads.

and finally, my last two homemade La Scala HF section fronts.  I kept one factory front as a router template, but I thought I'd sacrifice these two to the heavens.

nice, but put something under the stuff on top of the k horn or add a piece of glass.

You’re the second person to suggest that. I’m looking into a couple of avenues there.

Nice,I really need to build a shop with a listening room.

Love the old radio,I have a 1921 Westinghouse with a Magnavox  horn speaker on the KG-4s in my den.
