    KICK ASS, thank you Auggie. I got my type of wood picked out and narrowing in on the stain color. I will work on my templetes this week and getting ready to build.

    I think once you do a tutorial, people should post up their own projects to show what can be done.

    Well I haven't purchased the final piece of wood yet. I am looking at maple burl big leaf wood.

    I have my prototype almost finished, that I have made out of MDF, but it is only 1/2". I think 3/4" would look way over sized on my dash.

    I am still looking forward to your tutorial to see how you approached each step and how you handled the trim.

    IMO MDF sucks dick, really unworkable, heavy, and is made with chemicals and urine. My way is easier + makes alot of sense BTW 3/4" is about right..you'll see...

    Well I only used the MDF to make the prototype to see if it fit right, so I wouldn't waste good wood. Once I finish the prototype tomorrow I will post pics and tell me what you think.

    I am sure I will be able to learn alot from your tutorial.

    I used some plain painters tape doubled up to hold it temporaily for the pic.


    The finished product will use two side velcro and two small brackets on each end.

    You critique his efforts but offer no solution? Let's see how the table master does it.

    OK Aug, sorry. Thanks for the tips. The length is pretty much needed cause of the dash, and the width is almost 6" in the widest spot. I can make it a little shorter, I have slightly shorter supports, and I will switch to thicker wood like you said before.

    ^ Do you intend on leaving that entire lower wood angle on there?

    Well I could shorten them some.

    Nice work, I agree that a break in the long lines will add to the aesthetic appeal though. I have a few ideas that I have to prototype soon. just small variations that I haven't seen yet. Over all, Awesome work Aug, and great job so far Kingtoy....
