Excellent Mike! Your wood working and craftsmanship skills never cease to amaze me, and you always talk as if you just throw that stuff together in short order.

As most around here know I really don't get too overly involved with the graphing, acoustic treatments and such but I do use bass traps and do know that they really improved the bass in our particular room, I'm glad you too are having the same results ... plus, to me, they just freaking look neat as hell.

Anytime somebody sees our room for the first time they always ask about the huge speakers in the front corners of the room, I get a kick out of that.

I notice you also use white plates for your outlets on the front wall, I did also but after a while they became somewhat distracting so I painted the plates the same color of the front wall (red in our case, front wall only) and found that I really like them blending with the wall. The remainder of the room are still white plates.

Way to go big guy, that really came out first class!

Nice job on the traps. The right tools make a big difference in how easy it is to do even small projects.

You don't do anything half-assed, do you? Those look great! Thanks for taking the time to document your build process.

Beautiful job Mike! I also considered using small stands to lift my corner traps above the base boards but I have yet to make anything.

Screw how they sound. Shouldn't this be in the "Got Wood?" thread under "really, really great work"? \:\)

What are you trying to say Mark, my Play-set-Of-Death® is not, in fact, the greatest wood work you have seen? I'm hurt.

Is the "I'm hurt" directed at Mark or your abomination creation?

Lol, "Play-set-of-Death" reminds me of that Japanese show(forget the name), where contestants run across the obstacles and get knocked flying into the moat!

Well, I have a permanent scar on my calf from dropping a huge drill with an auger bit, tip first of course, during construction. Does that count?

Not far from accurate in design or implementation. Half the goal was to give some confidence on challenges, so it has its fair share of game show attributes. Swing on the trapeze the wrong way, and you will slam into a 6x6 post. Don't go down the fire pole the right way, you will pay with skin. Trust that those rocks on the rock wall will hold you - well that one is probably a lawsuit waiting to happen. I should address that.

I was trying to find out the name of that Japenese game show and found this one instead. WARNING: maybe very painfull to watch.
