DIY Large Ceiling Cloud

I have shown this in my build thread for my studio, but though it would be good to post my Ceiling Cloud build as a separate thread.

The cloud is 7ft by 11ft and I used salvaged boards for the sides which were 7 inches in width. I drilled holes through them to lighten them up and also hope to provide another way for sound to enter the insulation.

I filled them with 6in of Safe and Sound insulation.

Thanks for sharing!

That's some serious commitment to design and I love it.

I'm about to build a cloud, some corner traps, and a wall trap. However, just watching your video exhausted me...

Thanks for watching.

I'm going to start on movable Gobos next so I can try out putting them in first reflection points and move them around for tracking. Holes only on the vertical sides this time...

That was quite a build!

For wall panels - If you want wider boards that weigh a bit less, I have had good luck with Shiplap. It also has the tongue and groove edges, which you can fake into looking like a trim profile if you want!
