With the fabrication of the lower case essentially complete, its on to finishing...sanding, staining and applying wipe-on polyurethane. With a large piece like this, its essential (for me anyway) to be able to apply finishes comfortably, which I can do sitting down by using a homemade turntable.





The turntable is just the undercarriage of an old office chair.

Very nice work! How much is this thing going to weigh? Looks to me like it will be very heavy.

Thanks to all for the comments.

With the final finish applied to all surfaces the bottom case is now 99% done (its missing the bottom molding, which I won't apply 'til the very end).

Side:



Top:

I completed the fabrication of the top case's side doors and attached them using the same "post and hook" latching mechanism that I used on the bottom case.
