The next step was the molding. Now that is a really time consuming procedure! I hadn’t thought before we started it. First we added the corners: ½ in quarter round.
Then we started the base. We bought pine baseboard for that. And it is a pain on the neck, to cut the 45 degrees angles and have the exact size… yuk…
We used a piece of plywood as a guide, so the saw wouldn’t break the molding.
We made some pilot hole into the molding, because it cracked when I was trying to put a nail into a small piece. (I decided to upload smaller images, sorry if they were too big so far...)
Then we started the top. We had a smaller kind of baseboard for that.
I like the way it turned out.
This is the top view:
On the back we are missing 3 inches of baseboard, but Lowe’s only sells them in whole 8’ long pieces, so I am going to check HD if I can find the same kind of baseboard.
Then I filled all the holes with wood filler,
and I let it dry for 20 minutes… it was time for a coffee break
Than I sanded the whole stand, first with a 150, then with a 180 just a little bit.
