Looks like you're off to a great start. Is that MDF you're using? What kind of finish will you put on it? I am guessing a smooth white or black finish. Its going to look very nice, I'm sure.

Wish I could say the same, I helped him with it and usually I am the first person he calls when he needs an extra pair of arms. I used to think the garf design looked a little flimsy. I will now vouch 100% for the strenght of that design. Thing weighs a ton and could probably support one.
