She’s Ready For Paint! (well, almost…)

October 29th, 2012 No comments

The principle cabinet construction is complete (i.e. no more cutting, sawing, drilling, etc. needs to be done).  I do, however, need to use wood filler to cover the screw heads and fill some holes, sand everything, and then it’s time to prime.  The latest changes include

  • Cutting speaker holes
  • Routering air ventilation slots on the back of the cabinet
  • Drilling the front door key hole
  • Constructing a monitor post
  • Routering slots in the cabinet edges for the T-molding
  • Cutting the hole for the power module on the back

Time to start packing up the tools and cleaning up the garage.

It’s Getting There…

It looks like major construction is nearing completion.  I took a vacation day on Friday and over the long weekend I got the hinge mechanism for the control panel installed, a keyboard drawer built and installed, the supports for the monitor bezel installed, and the monitor bezel cut out, fitted, installed, and a hole cut for the monitor.  Whew!

Here is the cabinet with the keyboard drawer and bezel before the hole was cut in it:
