The top panel is 3/4" x 10.25" x 37" pine, hand sanded to a nice smoother finish. I stained it Maple with the polyurethane/stain in one mix and will be spray coating it with a few layers to more clear polyurethane.
I was so happy with the corner of the molding, I usually mess this stuff up so bad. I bought an extra 10ft of molding so that when I did mess up I didnt have to go to the store again. Figures I do it perfect on the first try this time.
So today I am drilling the hole in the lid and the top panel, then putting the final coats of polyurethane on. I received my Johnson control in the mail the other day and it works wonderfully. The freezer I picked up for 75$ out of the local classifieds. It cooled from 88dF to 32dF in 13 minutes and it stealth quite which is awsome. Obviously this is not Jesters Amazing Keezer
(that right it got capitals!) But it will be able to be inside my new apt and not look like total crap when I move in a few months.
Now for a few things. I do not want to leave the top that enamel white, What do you guys think about adhesive vinyl tile? What about some black spray paint covered in polyurethane. I want something forgiving to moisture and any possible flexing of the top when someone leans on it or t gets lefted from a corner or something.
