What an amazing room . Every man would love a wee bolt hole like this to escape to when the house gets too much . Bravo sir !
 
very impressed mate, what projector did you go for out of interest- just got one for my home office and makes football and movies a great experience, took me a long time to decide though as there’s endless choices/ reading! (apols if already answered)

Chose the BENQ W1400 in the end. Was a choice between that and two Optoma options. BENQ had the best reviews at the time and I can't fault it. Along with the fixed screen, there's never been a single problem with it in 4 years now. If I get another 2 or 3 out of it, I'd be delighted.

I'm not really up to speed with current models. Given what I generally watch on it, I don't have the need for 4k yet but maybe when the PS5 comes out, that'll change and I'll look at upgrades. It's a never ending cycle on the AV stuff. I'd probably plump for a new amp before I did anything else.

I've got another wee project on the go in there just now that should hopefully be done with in a month or so too. There's always something to tinker with.

@justice - my old man did it for me and it was fairly labour intensive and he's magic at that sort of thing in terms of planning etc.

The wood bending took a fair effort too including making the former etc and then steaming it. I'd have half assed it and bought a print if I had to do it myself, haha.

Your place is looking good. I'd have liked to put a pool table in but it was going to be at a cost of losing my bar area which wasn't an option. I'll need to look at a 1st floor lounge / snug extension.
aye mines about a meter shorter than it was meant to be which meant its just too short to have a proper bar.. I’m going to see what I can do on a workaround.

while I might not go the same lengths re bending the wood etc I might see if I can do something similar for the beam.
