LOL! That stand looks great! My dad is into woodworking, when he started, you could tell he was new, but you should see the things he makes now.

I just used a straight 1/4 router bit and cut a groove 1/8 deep. Then I just painted grooves black. I didnt want to do anything too fancy. Was trying to make it look old, or like it was made along time ago sort of Mission style I guess.

Well done. If I didn't know better, I'd guess it was an older piece. That wood really was a good choice.

The wood and black grooves made it an excellent match.

What's the Sump/Fuge going to look like?

Drawers where a nice feature as well.

Just finished my canopy and my lights arrived from AH supply the same day, perfect timing eh. Light kit was a 4x96 bright light kit. To be honest I was a little overwhelmed when I first opened it up and layed all the pieces out. It all went together really smoothly though, and let me tell you "Bright Kit" = understatement of the year. Retina burners would be more appropriate
