That is so cool. Can't wait to see how it comes together with the shelves. I'm sure you'll make it look awesome.

Admiring your carpentry!

Well I finally f'ed up. With the crown moulding on the stand it's 2 3/16 of an inch too big! so the solution is to strip the moulding off the stand which will shrink the overall dimension 5 7/8 inches. I will make the top 3/4 of an inch big to accept 1/4 round to try for a smooth finish. I guess when we move I'll put some new crown on and get a piece of granite for the top.

Got the new silicone in looking good. I pray it holds water! I'll fill it Thursday and let it sit for 9 days hopefully.
