Looks good..

As far as pics. Create your own gallery here on TRT (you can do so through your profile) and upload them to there. Then you can img tag then to the thread.

im starting to get down to the question.....2 doors, or 4 doors....hmmmm. i figured out i can get a door out of one whole sheet of veneer, so i can do 2 instead of 4. if i was to do the 4 doors i would only be using like 8" of a 21" sheet, seems like a waste of over half of a sheet. any input on what generally looks best, 2 or 4 doors?

That's going to be a gorgeous stand!

You may want to reduce the image size before you post them in the thread though as that is quite large ;)

I try not to go anymore than 6x8"

The visuals were always my favorite part :icon_rock:

Things are looking amazing bro... That walnut/burl combo is going to make an excellent looking piece of furniture!

As far as pictures, I clicked on the little yellow icon with the mountain, and pasted the exact same link that you originally posted into the little box that pops up.


this is the black walnut im using



unfortunatly, im only using a smal section of these burl sheets


a look at my personal lumber store..so many projects so little time

well i got some free time today so i figured i'd start the wraping phase of my stand..



:D :D :D
