The Weave Love

Churches all over have been inspired by The Weave set by Jeff Abbott. Check out what The Source did with it!

This church in Bradenton, Florida, worked with Jeff to create their own, awesome version.

  1. Very cool design. Great look & striking update from the before photo. How did you attach the coroplast panel strips to the PVC uprights? Hardware? Hot glue?

    • We're thinking glue or velcro. Hope that helps.

    • We wanted a little different version from the V shaped original design. We used 4×8 coroplast sheets, cut into 3 strips each, and attached them to round wood dowels. It made it easier to attach it from the different angles, without having to build brackets behind each one. We cut a plywood base, and doweled out 2 holes for the poles, which we then glued in place. At the top, we used fish wire to pull the poles together. We used a staple gun to attach the coroplast. Each column has one LED light shining UP from the ground. It was a cost of about $1500 (included the lights), and took about 3-4 days to build and assemble.

  2. Is that just white coroplast?

  4. Awesome set! May give this a try on our next setup. Thanks for the info.

  5. Is a good stage!! we are using you desing in our church for a big event, thanks for the info.

  6. Can you explain what you mean by "attached them to round wood dowels"? Can see anything like that in the pics. Thanks!

  7. This is a gorgeous setup, I plan on utilizing a version of this as our primary background for the next year!

    Quick question I'm trying to create this at our church. My question is..How did you all prevent from the plastic from bending when you curve it?

    • We used 2 spots on each end to staple the coroplast to the dowel. This kept it upright and straight. It's very flexible, so you can curve it quite a bit without any trouble.

  9. Is this dowel horizontal or vertical? How many dowels per piece? A picture of the base as well as the attachment points would go very far to answering a lot of questions I've seen posed here.

    Great Job!!

    • Dowels are vertical, and each set has 2. The picture in the middle, under the big picture up top, shows our base structure. If you email me directly at thesource@mac.com, I can send you better pictures. We then secured the dowels at the top with a hook at the top of each pole that we then secured the poles together with fish wire.

  10. By the way – I didn't mention that we used a staple gun to attach the coroplast to the wooden dowels. You will NOT see the staples from a distance and it works quickly.

  11. I love this stage design and am getting ready to do the same thing on our church stage…thanks for the inspiration! What kind of lights are you using? We have some old can lights I was thinking of using, and wanted to know if 500W bulbs would be too much?

      Better to be safe than sorry, probably won’t use the 500w par cans. As far as the LED’s go, what do you think the best option would be, p38, p56, or p64? I plan on making each weave different heights from 4ft to 8ft, so I wasn’t too sure what the best option would be (p38, 56, or64). Any help is very much appreciated, I’m not too familiar with lighting…but, I’m getting there.
