Time for a quick update. I am about 3 weeks into the emersed HC set up. I also just finished building 2 matching stands for my 20G as well as the 40B. All in all not too bad for my first time using the garage for something beyond auto stuff!
Here are a few pics.
3 weeks in and compared to the first pic you can really see a big difference!
The stands before they were skinned. The top and bottom are 3/4" ply.
Skinned with MDF 1x4's, the sides are beadboard, and a couple decorative mdf pieces in the corners. Primed with Shellac based primer and coated with high gloss enamel. ( I wouldnt use this as my paint choice a second time around unless I was going to spray it!)
This one is for the 20G...gives a better look at the beadboard on the sides.
