    Thanks sir! I should have actually named my YT channel "Learning From My Failures" but that doesn't roll off the tongue very well.

    It was worth it. Very enjoyable video, Tom. It makes for a great how-guide for people attempting curved cabinets.

    Despair not, big guy - I'll take quality over quantity any day . . . getting older sux but you have honed your skills while young and can pass the knowledge along to those following.

    Thanks for posting it - you should be proud/pleased with yourself - you earned it.
    Thanks a million, Steve!

    Although I try hard, it's clear to me that I'm no YouTuber... I may do a video every once in awhile -- like this one was 5 months since the previous one -- but I just don't have what it takes internally to do this consistently any more. It was VERY hard to finish this one.

    Thanks again for the kind words... that's encouraging!

    I didn't cover the grill in this video... That's a tiny bit involved and will get it's own video.
    Also, it's 17 minutes long... maybe get a snack ready before you click on it.

    Thanks guys.

    I find it hilarious that any of those 'lawn' pictures even came out. I couldn't see a thing on my iPod screen to even know how they would look. My method: take a boatload of pics and hope one or two of them doesn't have my thumb in it and actually looks half-decent.

    DJG: my other hobby, cutting the grass.

    My friend at work and her husband like them a lot. Thanks Mr. Carmody!

    Beautiful! I know the veneer darkened a lot with the clearcoat, but in the sunlight you can really see how pretty the grain is.

    Took a few shots in the sunlight outside today now that they're finished up.

    Yeah, the shot of the speakers was actually a freeze frame from video. I'm doing more video these days than pics. I'll get some good ones.

    I plan to make a video of the build so there will be more footage hopefully of how the veneer looks in light. They did really get dark.
