    Jabobs - is that one moulding or did you put three together to make that?On the collar for the
    top? Its one piece of trim. I got it at home depot.

    Why not take the top back off? Did you glue it in addition to those angle brackets?What
    dimension did you size the top too if not the outside? The inside then? I was going to
    duplicate the dimensions ...

    So --- Everything was moving along real nice, until now when I realized how much of a mistake
    it was not insulating the collar with the foam board BEFORE I mounted the top to the collar.

    is all normal right hand threads, but the new also Taprite brand add on Gauge is left hand

    I drilled the holes for the hinges last night and did a dry run.I have them reinforced with
    some small steel plates, but this thing still feels a little sketchy with it being made out of
    pine, though ...
