Was the corner square, or did you have to cope the corner to fit?
Darn near square . I shaved a few mm on my belt sander . I expected as much .
Debating to tear apart and use 1/2Ē BB. This may end up being a prototype yet .
I was thinking that if I took my time , I could air nail and glue the top after the strips are attached , then use white screws underneath for the bottom plate .
This way the bottom plate could be removed accessing the screws going into the wall again. The shelf could be removed if necessary if done that way.
Not that I can see having to remove a shelf other than Iím not pleased with the height in the future .
I kind of made a mess , as I had pencil marks higher than what I wanted . I decided to drop it a bit at the time , but I need to paint it to match the wall , so nothing major.
I originally was going to mitre the top and bottom, then mitre a front cap . This way there would be no lines to see , and I could stain it and see the wood grain.
But my living room isnít really using the wood look , more like white and black .
A dark stain may work though , but there may be to much contrast .
My coffee table is a lighter colour though , and my friend mentioned itís too light . I thought it provided a bit of character to the room,as everything is dark .
Want to build a coffee and end tables someday , and was going to go a bit darker
My terminology isnít great . I call stain that stuff where you can see the grains , but I believe you oil it for that?
Is stain considered paint?
