Giant Oval Molding w/ Built-in LED lighting

Home Theater Rendering

Home theater project

Last year I had the opportunity to do some specialty woodworking involving curved crown molding for an award winning in home theater by Admit One Cinema, and Twin Cities designer Annie Tropple.

Currently, we are working on a similar theater that is going to be equally awesome.  This time I’m doing all the woodwork, including a giant oval ceiling molding that’s going to have built-in LED lighting.

The oval molding measures roughly 11′ X 17′. The LEDs will give off a soft blue glow to the interior of the oval ceiling, which is designed to look like stars.

The oval parts were drafted in AutoCAD Inventor by my pal Mike Prom, and were cut out of 1″ MDF using a CNC router.  Mike also helped me out with a uber complicated hidden drawer mechanism that I built into a custom bookcase in 2010.

I’m really jazzed to be a part of this project, it’s going to be rad.  I’m looking forward to filming the final product with my buddy Joshua VP when it’s totally completed.
