Looking pretty good so far, I wonder how much someone would pay for one of these things, someone would probably buy it at MGC. I wish I could go there and see it, but just like your sig sas, "t3h economiez broken my monies"

Hey! Don't you go start judging our puerile jokes! You started this! :P

Looking forward to seeing your projects in person, man. I'm currently writing this in Chicago, so I'm on my way!

What kind of wood are you using anyway? i.e. How strong is this thing, the wood looks fairly thin.

Yes the edges will be rounded like the top. Straight lacquer for the finish. No stains or dyes. Stains mask the true look of the wood you are using.

Thanks!

Curled Maple and Mahogany. Those woods are fairly dense and strong.

Well I broke the bottom. No time to fix it before MGC. Sorry to be a ball buster. The Video mods is all I am bringing now :(

Oh sure, as soon as someone (me) asks how strong the wood is, it breaks. Well, as long as it's not dead.
