Ok Randy so I know you are tired of me already but you will he happy to know I bit the bullet and purchased a router. I didnt know (and still dont)anything about them so I just got a basic fixed base unit. Now my question for you is should I wait until I assemble the boxes to route out the back or route the peices individually before assembly?

Buy some 2 x 4s and practice, practice, practice. Actually routers are pretty easy to operate, you'll be fine. Now that you have one you'll find ton's of reasons to use it. I typically assemble a project first and then route the edge, that's just what works for me.

However, if your talking about the groove to mount the back of the unit in, I'd route the pieces first prior to putting the frame together.

Thanks,

Mike

What he said. Go slow, but not to slow to burn...oak smells great when you char it with a router. I prefer the smell of Cherry or Walnut...I miss shop class in the 70's

The simplest way is to take your intact 8 foot board (or whatever size you get) and route the entire board. Since you will prolly butt join the box assemble, the top and bottom will be covered and you won't see the slots.

New Paragon Popcorn machine. It is a bit short so I did some minor construction from all the scraps that I had from the bar and riser build. It is a great machine, 4 oz with a heated bottom! Gave my other machine to #2 son.

Nice job, I should have done something similar, I purchased the cart with the wheels and it's just too big and bulky. I wish you did this sooner so I would't have wasted my money

I had the one with the cart and wheels and hated it. It was worth getting rid of! I actually stole this idea from BigMouthInDC...so I can't take any credit for it.

BTW for you and Steve....the cabinet is COPPER color!

Now that is a nice popper. Great work (as always) Randy. And we all thought your build was finished....

FOUR Oz?!?!?!

That's like drinking one of those little airline bottles of Jack and saying I drank a WHOLE bottle last night. Man up. Get at least a 6 oz.

Base looks really nice, though.

Thanks Hey Now for your posts. I looked at you design so many times when I was designing mine I felt like I lived there...LOL. Have you ever thought of replacing that mirror with a big screen?

Thanks. Yes, I have. But I just love looking at myself too much I would lose too much shelf space and the glasses at the top. Who knows, maybe I will. I do have an extra flat panel in the spare room. My wife thinks I am collecting LCD screens.

LOL...isn't that the truth. The wife just asked me the other day what I was keeping all the scrap wood for, now I have an answer for her.

Excellent work my friend simply excellent. I removed my electric fireplace similar to yours pre-build/renovation and didnt think I had the room to put it back in but I may reconsider since I now have seem how you did yours. I cant help but wonder though about your wiring (for the fireplace)being up to code?? LOL

The fireplace is LP Gas. The wiring is simply a plug that I put in a power strip outside the fireplace for the blower in the fireplace. I have my comcast cable running behind it for now. I still have a lot of work to do. Another shelf on the brick ledge and maybe panel the brick. I have to also put cement board down on the brick base and tile it. I will need to remove the bricks in the front arch too. Far from complete. Oh and the crown molding under the top and trim between the fireplace tile and wood. I'm tired just thinking of what I have to do yet.

Looks good Randy, I like the look. I did something similar to your pilasters on my basement pole when I boxed it in. I like the boxed look you gave each one, I have been looking for a bottom and top design and may have just found it. So you just boxed the bottom and added the trim and topped it with 1/4 round ?

Here is what I did.

1x6 oak, added another short 6 inch oak piece at the bottom and top then added the moulding. Gives the top and bottom a little more beef.

Oh and this project allowed me to score a new biscuit joiner and tile saw!

Okay thanks. One quetion though, Did you add the 1/4 round /shoe molding first or after you added the molding pieces?

NICE work as always! Looks great except for that stupid helmet in lower left hand side. I know it's a gas fieplace but maybe you could make an exception just this once.

It caps the end grain of the 1x6x6 pieces at the top and bottom.
