lazboy 1I wanted some way to secure the chairs to the riser, but also wanted to be able to break it down, both to move it and to further modify it if necessary.  That pretty much meant that the chairs could not be screwed down.  Fortunately, the front feet are set back a bit from the front edge (and the user’s feet) and they have a graceful curve.  I purchased red oak 1x2’s from Lowe’s and sliced them in half on a 45 degree angle.  My table saw was not really designed for that type of sawing and the pieces show it.  They will be painted, so it does not matter.  I placed and marked the positions before moving the chairs back and fastening the blocks.

lazboy 3Here the blocks are installed and the chair feet are in their "saddles."  Gravity will keep the chairs very secure.  The area in front of the chairs will be carpeted; the area under and behind will be painted black.
lazboy 4Work on the riser continues with the mounting of the Pronto RF Extender positioned to IR-blast the A/V gear seen on the left.  Power will be ran from an outlet in the floor (under the front row of chairs) to a point under the riser.  The outlet is a remnant of the huge, floor-mounted projector visible at the beginning of this website.  The RFX6000 will plug into an outlet strip also under the riser.  Dimmable lighting will also be installed in the riser for safety and atmosphere.

Another view of the RFX6000.  I’ll be glad when my Pronto remote system is online as it is a major pain to have to hold the remote above my head and aim to the rear of the room.  And if I’m sitting in the front row, I cannot "hit" the gear, requiring me to stand.

(4/10/06 - I’ve been enjoying the theater sooo much, this detail has not yet been completed.)
