Stage Designs


Jeff Abbott from Ada Bible Church in Grand Rapids, MI brings us this the follow-up to The Weave.

From Jeff: We created this simple but dynamic set with basic materials: Coroplast, 1×2 construction lumber, and paint. A grid was constructed from 1×2’s with a 1/2″ deep by 3/4″ wide Dado cut down the center of the board. Panels were cut from Coroplast and then cut halfway through on the center line to create a bend point (the Coro Claw is essential in making this cut).

Once the panels were cut, the panels were painted 2 colors of grey, one darker than the other. When lit, this created a contrast on the panels to reinforce the woven feel of the set. The paint was sprayed on with a home paint sprayer. The panels were nailed to the grid in an alternating pattern. Light panels oriented vertically, the darker panels oriented horizontally.

    Could you confirm the paint colors you used and type of paint? This design looks really cool and reflects your stage lights very well.
