    Top quality work there Dave! You're lucky to have a Bunnings to go to, here in Doha it could take a day of running around to find laminate, whatever colour and size they have in stock is what you get (they won't/can't cut it to size for you), then another few hours to find a fastener store that sells screws etc in anything other than 'industrial construction' size and as for hinges and handles? Well, let me just say thank god IKEA opened 6 months ago!
    Bunnings is certainly a great shop Glenn, I live there! Fortunately I have my own tools so I can cut all this stuff which is handy but the missus gets a bit disappointed in the mess I manage to create!

    Looks great, with all this work behind you is there anything you would have done differently now?

    Thanks for the compliments Glenn, yes mate, I'd have done a few things differently. I'm not a carpenter by any means so I've buggered up a few joins and things but I reckon by the time I run some white gap fillet around the edges you'd never know. There is one part I'm not too happy with which is where I made the long narrow display, I buggered up the top of it because I changed my mind about what I was doing half way through. I think I'll be able to hide the mistake by covering it with the frame that will hold the Perspex in place so I reckon I may have dodged a bullet there. I have a few ideas about how I will lay out the next section which I'm sure will pose its own challenges as, no doubt, I'll be making it up as I go along!

    Thanks for the nice comments James! No mate, I'm no chippy, I'm a tour guide working in the automotive industry at the moment as a welder. I do enjoy making things though, I finished a roof rack for my landrover last week and I'm hoping to have this cabinet finished in another couple of weeks but I'm learning as I go with this project as wood is not something I usually work with. It's coming along and I'm reasonably happy with the way it's shaping up and, most importantly, the missus seems reasonably pleased with its progress!

    ...always a good idea

    You will have to hold an opening ceremony when the display is finished!

    A little bit more done gents, nothing spectacular just the white background for the display. I used a piece of white MDF for this, it's only about 3mm thick but is the same white as the melamine I'm using for the cabinet. It also weighs nothing, I measured and cut it to size then ran a couple of pieces of extra strong double sided tape down the wall, close to the edge of the melamine. Then I pushed the MDF into place against the wall where the double sided tape picked it up and held it firmly in place. I then used some white gap filler and ran it along all of the inside joins, then using my finger, I wiped off the excess. It actually came up pretty well! I've bought some LED strip lights online, just waiting for them to arrive and I'll have a better idea on how to proceed from here.
    Cheers boys, Dave.Click image for larger version.
