Just remember the best part of cabinet building is the journey.  (he says with a tinge of guilt since he's not updated his thread in 5 months)

Haha! Thanks. It certainly makes for lots of stories to make people's eyes glaze over when they're ready to play.  :lol

Got this bad boy installed. This is a smaller task, but is an item of finish that I would've never thought of, had I not read it here first. 



I obviously need to polish up the wood around it. That will come before side art, as I'll make one final pass of imperfections and such.

And FINALLY got the marquee installed! I ordered from some UK guys on eBay, as it was $20, instead of $50 +tax locally.

I'm pleased with it for the price. Although upon installation, I put some small air bubbles in it. Argh. Thankfully it's not at all noticeable when on.

Pretty soon, my graphic design brother -in-law is moving, and we are taking our 10 year wedding anniversary to help them. In lieu of payment, my response will be: "do my CP art!" Haha
