How long did the whole thing take to make if one were to devote an entire day to this project?

I am sure you can make the room if you really wanted to.

Well it was my first build and I started Friday night after work and finished sometime on Saturday since I had to go and buy new wood cause I cut some wrong. The plexiglass door was a PIA and took a few hours to shape and make perfect not to mention painting the border. I advise using wood glue prior to screwing each piece to avoid any squeaking. Finished product came out like a tank. So if you have some skills and all the proper tools I showed in the picture it should be good weekend project or maybe even a full day if you start early and make no mistakes.

Hey thank you very much I appreciate the compliments and flattered that you stole a few pointers as well as my clear door design. I love the way it looks when the LED lights are on at night changing colors slowly.
