So here are some more pics on the progress of the stand.
I put the top trim on the stand base. This is the same 1x6 used at the bottom without arches cut into it. I mitered the corners for a nice finish.
Some blocking that was done to catch the side panels as well as finish out the inside of the cabinet. along the bottom of the 1x6 trim you see a 1x2 running horizontal, this was done to mimic the reveal at the bottom with the base.
The small vertical block you see is there for the side paneling to attach to. I have it recessed about 1/4". The side panels are made from 1/4" MDF.
The second pic shows 3 blocks attached and you can see that i have done the same on all corners of the stand.
Side panel one..in
A close up...
Here's a pic of the cabinet with the top on and the rest of the trim work done.
