sounds cool, be sure to post pics when you're done! here's the fan i threw together from 3 broken (free) ones. i may switch it to a different one someday, but for now, it's ok.

dangermouse, i like it. .. a lot. i will start looking for panels now to steal your idea

if i were doing that job, i would feel inclined to add construction grade adhesive to the panel before i squished it to the ceiling. the reason, i am hesitant that the screws would hold in the drywall ceiling. on the other hand, your darker wood trim probably intersects with ceiling joists every now and again, so if that trim is holding the panels in place and you held the trim to the joists with screws.. then that would work too.

thanks for sharing this, very decoratively savvy of you.

thanks Knucklez!
i really did enjoy this one. Po)
and absolutely, i DID use PL for the 14" cross strips and the butted ends that did not line up on a stud, EVERY 2' on the stud has a screw 2-1/2" holding the walnut through the drywall and into the rafter stud. (i ran a blue chalk line to follow to be sure) i even glued the end screws as i tenderly screwed them in....
there's also a thin line of glue in the center of each larger panel to help prevent any future sagging too. guess i shoulda mentioned that, huh? sorry
