    Coffered Ceiling Advice

    I'm thinking of building a coffered ceiling in one of my rooms, but I've never built one, or seen one done. My guess is that I should screw something like a 1x to the ceiling, and then build the boxing. Once the boxing is in place, then add any finish trim. [edit] I forgot the minor detail...

    (OOOPS... My apologies... this should have probably been posted in the Wood Forum) Sorry I've been rather absent of late... but building this recording studio has proven to be quite a bit more than I had thought it would be. (When people commit to helping, and then don't, you slow down when...
