Thanks for the link! Of course the first HD I went to didn't have any, so I'll be visiting another one today.

What is that program you're using to draw up all these great plans?

My lid weighs a ton (marble tile) and it didn't need any reinforcement of the hinges.

I know the lid will be heavy, but I don’t think I’ll need anything for the hinges. Like Erik (Jester369) says, his weights a ton and he didn’t do anything. Maybe a small chain to take some of the stress when open, but I'll see how it goes first.

I think they have it at Lowes, too. Believe it or not, I’m using Paint Shop Pro 5.0. I’ve had this program forever, and I just find it so easy to do stuff like this. I tried using Microsoft Visio first, but I didn’t feel like learning all the in and outs of that monster, so back to a known.

Thanks, Erik. I have to tell you, I took a ton of your ideas and put them in my build. Yours is absolutely great looking! Thanks for the inspiration, and yours is what convinced the wife that it will look good in the living room. I’m even doing the lights under the faucets because she likes yours so much.

Time to start staining the parts that will hard to get to later. Two things I hate to do, plumbing and anything that involves a paint brush. Lucky for me, the wife loves to paint, so she has taken over staining duty. Let’s see how she feels about it tomorrow when the big stuff is ready…

It's 1:00 AM Saturday morning. Wife's still staining, and I'm still sitting back drinking beer.

Life IS good!

Thanks. Some more progress on the build. Faucet Coffen is coming together. Sill have to cut down the top to the correct fit, put the back on and finish staining, but it's getting there.
