I got some plywood and some boards that I'm going to use as trim. I'm no carpenter so plain, non decorative trim will be used. I wanted to get nicer wood and stain it, but the wife wants me to paint it black, so it's going to be black.
I'm stuck though. Can't figure out what to do about the hinges. Rather than cutting the doors out, I figured I'd give myself better access to the sump area and just make the whole face of the stand open, and I can't figure out how to do the hinges. I've got the front two "doors" put together and the sides will be the same, but fixed to the frame. For the life of me I can't figure out a way to do the hinges where they won't stick out an inch. I may get a piano hinge and notch out a place in the side panels to completely hide the hinge, which is what I want.
I'm going to fill all the cracks with wood putty and sand it smooth so it should look like one solid piece when it's finished. Let me know what you think!
