    monitor stand project

    well, i guess that this is the first of the furniture projects to be done. i cut the board i had set aside for the top into blanks for the top. cut the curve, and sanded to the line, halfway done! then it was on to the sides. used a pair of scrap end cuts for this. planed them smooth, and jointed the one edge. then i laid out the lines of the side, and the bottom curve (i can thank folgers for that one). taped them together, and cut the angles on the miter saw, and the curve on the band saw, and sanded to the line. all done but the sanding, gluing up, and finishing. the finishing is someone else's job for a change.

    Cute little stand. Sure looks better than the two phone directories that I have under my monitor.

    Dan are there enough hours in a day for all your projects? You are one busy dude. And the results are outstanding.
