This project was decided and done within a 3 day span. We knew we needed to get the sound/video equipment for the church out of sight and out of little hands way.
We decided, that for all practical purposes, a raised platform with walls would work best, as it gives us room underneath to run wire if needed, also to store equipment. Plus, it quickly allows us to monitor who is around the equipment. It also hides the equipment behind something nice, rather than seeing the old wires and such.
Framing was built with conventional framing lumber, with T&G 3/4” flooring put down for the sub floor. Since we had oak in the sanctuary anyway, we finished this off in red oak. The steps are red oak as well. There will be carpet laid inside as we get the funds and the stain will go on then, as well.
I put an ogee edge on the top rail of the walls to soften the look up a bit and plan on making a cross out of the scrap oak left over. (As soon as I get some time.)
