Postby Dimitris » October 2nd, 2013, 1:08 pm

Hi everybody
I wanted to upload some photos as my project proceeds, but I had an accident and I couldn’t do anything, after the 8th of September slowly I started again working on my project. If you want you can see a video in YouTube: http://youtu.be/7qOdsoE267g

Hi Gary
Glad you like it. You guessed right, I'm sure you know the feeling when you do something and how impatient you are to the finish it. As for the other half of the fun is the mistakes I've made, the knowledge I get from those and I think that is the way to gain experience.

P.S Please forgive any mistakes in my writing

Nice job on the cabinet. I made mine out of some wood that is used to line the inside of tractor trailers. It has a fiberglass coating on both sides. Again nice job. Now you will know what to do when you build tour bigger one.
