Hi all,
Here is my first attempt at a cocktail cabinet build.

I started this morning measuring and cutting all the pieces. Then progressed to assembling the beast. Still have'nt cut the second control panel yet, but its a work in progress.

I am happy with it so far for a first attempt. Dont mind the no more gaps, this will sand out at the next stage.

Will post pics in the photo gallery for you to view.

Cheers

Yes 1 day. The lovely finance manager took the rug rats out today so I was home alone with no distraction's so it made it a little easier to get stuck into it.
I have been planning it for soooooooo long I finally bit the bullet and started it.
Yes shooter the buttons will come out before painting.

Once completed, I have managed to source a signwriter (who has a CNC router) who cut me a couple of uprights to work on. Should go together a bit easier than this one and NO cutting .....WOOHOO...........

danny_galaga,
The legs I am working on tomorrow (hopefully).
I will be attempting to place the wiring and parts tomorrow also. I finished the second control panel today and once the parts and monitor are in I will cut the top to suit my bezel.

Fitting a 48cm monitor.
