Making good progress. Got lots of ideas from others here on the forums. Finally put together an album. I will update it as things move along.https://picasaweb.google.com/davidandsa ... eat=email#
Some details of the build:
The bottom is oak plywood and wood studs along with red oak panels miter cut. I placed 6 wheels with locks underneath. You can’t see them which gives it a floating look and alows it to slide around if necessary.
The Lid is a Pine inner collar surrounded by the same Red Oak panels miter cut. The top is just Oak plywood inlaid on top of the pine.
I plan to liquid nails some wainescot panels on the front 3 sides to cover the white.(or something similar I am still deciding).
Everythign is all sanded down and ready to be stained. I am still trying to pick out stain colors.
I’ve been building my for the past several weeks. I didn’t want the standard tan/dark oak look so i went with this:
collar is 2 x 6 construction grade
drip tray backing is 1x5 oak flooring.
light = 2 coats
dark = 4 coats.
