    The Man Cave project

    Haven't had a lot of time to work on the man cave project but found some time this week to print the brick wall and install it this afternoon. That PhotoTex is the bomb!

    Still have to trim the windows, doors, baseboard and box in the wall columns. Little by little....

    Started my Foosball table wrap project started over the weekend. In order to do the sides, I have to pretty much dismantle all of the handles. They are all held together will roll pins that have to be punched out. Gonna need some beer before I start that.

    Pretty cool. You should do some 3D prints for the floor that look like stairs going down, holes, etc.

    When I die my wife is going to ship you my body so you can prop it up in the corner. Nice place to spend eternity.

    Looks cool. I have a princess theme for my daughters room. It's fun doing stuff like that.

    Hello, about the: brick wall pattern. Is it a seamless pattern you bought. If so, please tell me where, I always struggle to find nice seamless patterns in general.

    Regards

    I had to build it from scratch. Started with a section of brick and then multiplied and blended in all the panels. Pretty hard to tell where the seams are.

    A couple of updates. I'm running 6" stove pipe around the perimeter of the exposed wall to give it a more industrial look. I custom designed the brackets that support the pipe. It was left over black pvc scraps I was able to use up. The current white ceiling panels I will print with faux copper tin panels. Here's the tentative plan for the exterior bathroom wall. The last photo shows the bathroom as it is now. I plan to carry the wall all the way up to the ceiling. I might do a combination of phototex wall print along with cut out dimensional gears and what not.

    edited. Found this shot with the trim boards done along with a pic of the five new bronze chairs I bought...

    Maybe a couple of years and I'll have it finished. This is my weekend project and some times I'm too tired to push myself. I have a lot of stuff flying around in my head

    At home in the back where my old shop used to occupy. I had a lot of space that needed something in it :)

    Here's what I had in there before.

    MUCH better use of that space!!!! That "before" picture looked too much like real work. ...Very well done. How is that area air conditioned for the steamy FL summers?

    John I have a seven ton central heat/air for the entire 2k s.f. When I go out there to use it, it takes about ten minutes to cool the entire space down to a chilly 76 degrees!

    Very nice. There has to be a way you can use the duct work as a beer delivery system. And that water fountain outside of the bathroom. That needs to be a seasonal brew dispenser.
