Making the case

how do people get so good at that what type of wood do you use were do you get it? How do you get that glossy artwork?

look at the stickies

I am going through this myself right now. I started my first stick about 3 weeks ago. It has been a slow process of learning, but very fun. You can get pretty much everything you need at Lowe’s or Home Depot.

I started out using MDF, but messed it up pretty bad. When I went back, I said screw messing with with the debris MDF creates, so just went with some 3/4" Oak to make the sides/top, while leaving the bottom 1/4" MDF.

I have zero experience in woodwork, and so far everything seems ok. The key is having the right tools, and planning ahead. :slight_smile:

I will post a whole log once I am done with it, since it has taken me this long to get where I am. Otherwise, it will just get lost in the sea of posts.
