    And also another project I build a few months back.

    Poplar painted with a cherry top and reclaimed Douglas Fir doors (from a boardwalk in CT that had been there since the 50's)


    The doors have a barn door style mount now. I will try to get pictures of it this weekend.

    Nice piece Zach, the use of natural and painted wood really makes the doors pop, cool look.

    Very nice. I like it.
    I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Nice work, that's a nifty project with an interesting mix of finishes.

    What are the 4 doodads on the top, 2 of which have antennas?

    Really interesting design, Zach. The barn doors stand out just enough to make it unique.
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    Nice craftsmanship Zach. The mix of finishing techniques makes your piece visually interesting and the use of reclaimed materials now makes it a unique piece with a history. You rock!

    Very nicely done sir. I would like to see the barn door hardware when you get a chance.

    We ditched the cable box when we moved, we ditched the DVD too. We got new modem and kept the wifi. We don't use cable anymore. Just HD Antenna and internet. Stream anything we want to watch. The router is support all the devices in the house. 2 Amazon Fire Sticks, 3 laptops, 2 tablets, 2 phones, a printer, something called a Cricut and guests that come and go. Gadgetry is what keeps the kid and wife happy. I use my 10 yo laptop and phone. Thanks about it. Happy wife....
