Gaps and Spaces

Rik Hedlund from Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, Arkansas brings us this design (in his words) stealing the best of the best of CSDI.

Rik’s a huge proponent of the idea that there’s no real “creativity” – it’s just taking ideas and putting them together. Creativity, is just solving problems. (Feel free to argue below…should be fun.) :)

To get rid of the black holes under the side screens (where people would just disappear), he went for a Beaming look. He drilled 3″ holes through some sheets of Luan plywood to make the look. Then he threw some Par cans behind the walls.

To create the back wall he combined a few different designs. He started by studding out a wall with 2x4x16’s that they split into 2×2’s to save money. Then he added 1/8″ Luan plywood that they cut into 2’x2′ and 2’x4′ sections. Then he screwed them into the studs in a random pattern.

Finally he added some Marconi Edison-style bulbs he found online.

Overall cost was $500.
