OK all done except for the drawer pulls but I will turn them up shortly. Stained the box and it came out pretty good as I didn't want a finish to say its new and it happened better than I planned. I forgot the pic with the top up but you can see that ;)
Andrew I work the brown stuff in another area because its messy and I'm not that keen on it, mainly because if its cut short I can't just weld a piece on ;D

Main thing is I now have a place to put more ....oops my mics and stuff.and with luck have room to require another tool or 2 ;D
