Ok, so had to give my ears a rest and breathe some non basement air for a bit so decided to make a table for my AV receiver.
I don't have many good pictures but it's just a basic coffee table made from solid oak that I had left over from fitting the skirting board in my basement.



Oak is my favourite wood to work with, it's stunning whether it be machined or rough cut and you can sand it down increasing the grit on the sandpaper to a point where it becomes soft like if you were to pour flour on some glass and run your hands over it, odd description I know lol but it's hard describe.

I routed a step into the lengths before I cut the mitres which allowed me to fit a clear acrylic top. I also had to make the legs by cutting a 45 degree edge down 2 sections and joining them together with a biscuit joiner. This gave the table a more bulky appearance and also allowed me to fit a clear shelf on chrome dowel pegs to sit the AVR on.






There is not one screw, nail or staple in the entire table, every joint is a glued biscuit joint, cut with this: Biscuit jointer

biggrin.gif:DOK, so unfortunately the pictures are now very limited and certainly don't do the screen any justice. As soon as I get back, i'll film some gaming etc and hopefully persuade some people to join the big screen gaming club over the 'higher res super expensive but small' monitor club

Here's a shot of the nearly finished screen, albeit with some rough edges but I moved away for work before I got a chance to really finish it. I still have the materials to do it at home but I'm just not in the same county!



I stupidly took some pictures with the lights on in the day so the shots are pitiful to say the lease, however it does show just how usable the screen is in the day. Unless you have a south facing window on the opposite wall to the screen, it is great through the day and mind blowing at night.



This shot is a bit better at showing how sharp the image is even at 100" although the noise in the picture severely handicaps the image, so zoom in on this one to see but please look past the grainyness from the poor camera.



This is the last one I have, I had my nephew stand in the shot (and pull a face) to show scale and you can sort of see the great colour range and contrast but again, taking shots of high quality images with a cheap and rubbish camera will never represent what it really looks like.



That's it for a little bit with the pictures, I'd love to discuss it more if anyone wants any info as I did a whole lot of research and am happy to pass on what I found. I'll be sure to update the thread as soon as I can with some videos and this may also be the beginning of a 're build' thread as I will be moving soon and hopefully will be getting it set up again really soon.

Thanks for reading so far.

To be continued

Yeah, he loves it, I set him up on C&C 3 sometimes and he's in his element lol, we have had some big old Lego Indian Jones games going as well lol. One game that really shines with the size element is Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, even with it's cartoony graphics, riding the rides, especially roller coasters is a whole different experience compared to normal screens. I think I mentioned before though, Skyrim and Witcher 2 played in 3D are just immense! The feeling of depth as you run through and under trees works amazingly. I had it running on some cu back settings as I only had a 5870 at the time but I'll be able to turn things back up and run more mods with my 7950.

Even with a low end camera that looks beautiful. I am impressed thoroughly. Well done.

Have thought about doing something similar but don't know where to hang all my pictures of wolves : / ... I love wolves.

You could look into the pull down screens, or make your own pull down, though the latter would be a lot more difficult. Or just hang a picture right in the middle of the screen when you aren't using it lol

Hey, thanks smile.gif

I can't encourage you enough to do this, it has changed the way I use my computer, especially with modern graphics, gaming is amazing. You wouldn't believe how spectacular the motion is on these, films too look so good. Also the upscaling engines on both the PJ and my AVR do an amazing job, low res Youtube videos become a joy to watch. It's quite comical as well, when you have the YT videos on the normal page and not in full screen, the actual video pane is the size of a 50" screen tongue.gif

You could also get some wolf slide show pics as a screensaver to replace your wall hung pictures!! Google "projector 'pop' " the HD33 has excellent 'pop' so will make your 2d images come to life. One of the best technology experiences of my life was walking through the caves on dear Esther. Wow is all I can say I wish people could come round so I could show them.

I really want to play it in 3D as I played it through on my Plasma in 3D and it really was amazing that paired with the fact I don't rate 3D tv's at all is really saying something!
Basically, I think 3D is a bit pointless unless it fills for field of view, then it really allows immersion, seeing my fireplace next to my plasma just takes that all away.

A great solution, there is a huge range of temporary screens available. I hope my enthusiasm will at least rub off a tiny bit as you won't be disappointed smile.gifthumb.gif
