Studio Construction

I think I’ll just edit my MarsEdit preferences to automatically put “Studio Construction” into the title field of every blank post window. Geeze…

So I decided to bite the bullet and make the smaller cabinet. It turns out that practice does indeed make perfect. It was a breeze for me to cut the stock for the walls and laminate the sides with leftover laminate from the first cabinet. It took me about 90 minutes to get that much done. Tomorrow I’ll go back to the lumberyard for a bunch of lyptus (now that I’m sold on the wood) and a couple more hours to finish up. In about 3-4 hours I will have made a hardwood lined rolling 12 rackspace cabinet that would sell for around $300. Not too bad. Maybe I should make these things professionally!

I had more fun that I thought I would making both cabinets. There weren’t any tricks to them (90 degree corners and easy to handle pieces) and they went together admirably fast. The lyptus is a dream to work with and the Tried and True goes on like butter. SO much better than the overpriced junk you get from the music stores.
