    Well I finished putting it together. All it needs now is some trim put on the front, and painting.

    And I even cut out openings for cords.

    That's going to be a nice looking piece of furniture. Now just slap an 80" flat screen on top and you're good to go.

    Notching the shelves to allow free passage of the assorted cords was inspired.

    Well when the riding mower broke today (drive belt) I went to lookin for 1x2s (yeah I have a bunch of em layin all over the place).
    Found a couple, 3 or 4, and started with a 1/4" Roman bit on the router. Then flipped it over and did the other edge of the same side. All this just to test it to see how it would look. LOOKS pretty dam good. Then sanded the center ridge left by the router, and put it on using a couple clamps to hold it in place. It REALLY LOOKS good.
    Going to do an angled 45 cut, and use glue and my 2 in 1 nailer to tack it (them) into place.

    Dad has made legs for a piece he built. He is going to make me a couple legs for the front. He said 2, then upped it to 3. He said he would make one for the center so it would not sag in the middle. He said then I could use 4x4 cut down blocks for the back because no one would see those.

    Then all that will be left is sanding and painting.

    I been looking for a silver blue to kind of try and match the motor cover on the boat and I haven't seen ANY PINK paint anywhere in 3 stores.
     
  11. I saw a couple of different shades at the Walmart here, including a high gloss. :D

    Dad cut out the legs, and had them ready yesterday.

    So today I was putting them together. I started looking at them before I put them together and says to meself they to plain.
    So I doctored them up with the router. These are for the front. I am going to cut some wood pieces out for the back. Not going to make them fancy, no one will see them.

    These are the front corner legs.

    Great job. I'm great with metal but wood just really is troubling to me. Pink? Yes. My favorite color. LOL. But that would be an X-Rated post. Vibrant pink is the best!

    This is how the legs went on, the back ones not as fancy.

    But it wasn't sitting right. So I went back and took all the back legs off. But it would not stand up. So I only used one back leg.
    I also replaced one front leg. Completely rebuilt it. Set it up and it was sitting the way I wanted it to.
    The other day I went rummaging thru the garage den area of the house, and out in the shed. I found some 1x2s and started working with the router on them. Today I put some of the trim on the front.

    These were taken today with some of the trim on front added and the one back leg, and new front leg

    I used the router on the underside of the base and dug it out a bit for the legs to sit in. Then screwed and glued them in place. In the process of going back and cutting wood dowels and filling the drill holes. I counter sunk all the screws.
