Josh Collesano from Woodside Bible Church in Troy, MI brings us these really cool curved wood panels.
They started by ripping luan panels to make two 2×10′ panels. Here’s the rest of the process:
- Holes are drilled uniform 11.5″ in and 2.5″ in
- Used a 1 and 1/4″ paddle bit
- Laid each piece on its side and three people bent and fed pipe through one end and into and through the top end.
- They secured the pipe to a mic base by passing the 1/2″ pipe through the base and attaching a coupler underneath (large panels only)
- They attached a coupler to the top of each pipe just for good measure
- They then leveled each pipe piece before attaching the jack stand. Two screws from the front hold the jack stand nicely.
- They meticulously set the panels where they wanted and then used a shotbag (sandbag) for good measure
- Each panel ended up being 8.5′ tall with the bend. Their screen bottom was 9′. This meant you could use any length you wish but they needed height for their venue but knew they had to stay below 9′.
- The panels were up lit using 5 Elation DLED bars and each light bulb is on its own dimming circuit
- 4×10 luan
- 1/2″ aluminum conduit
- 1/2″ conduit couplers
- Circular mic stand bases (for larger panels)
- 4’x2′ jack stands made of 2×4 or 1×3’s (one per panel)
- IKEA hanging light chords (optional)
- Light bulbs (optional)
- Black flat spray paint
