Heavy, that's looking fun! Thanks for posting the pictures.

What color LEDs have you installed? Do you think you're going to cover your console with a fabric or naugahyde? Some veneer from that wood you have would look awesome...

One of these days I need to figure out how to use some of my Grandfather's and Dad's tools to do that sort of woodwork. I still have Grandpa's table shaper and a bunch of fixtures, but some of the stuff is a real mystery to me.

I love your idea of turning the scraps! You could make your own fancy harlequin wood posts for a bar area or get into all sorts of artistic things with those.

I'll be looking forward to your next installment!
