Edit: did you use oak dowelling for the construction and ply on top? Hit me with finishing questions if you have any.
Edit2: duh.... Aspen tops. Nice! Should stain well if that's what you're after.
I first thought of stain as that is what I did for my rack and some of the other wood work in the room. Then I switched to a low sheen textured paint. I have one coat of that on ATM. The Jury is still out so far, will give it a second light coat an see how it goes. I would have gone Oak if I was going to stain as that is what all the other wood I have stained is. I just like the look of stained Oak. Simple and classy.

Great work on the stand! I'm going to miss the paisley though.
Yup, obviously the commercials are SLIGHTLY misleading. I know the only woman I'm interested in is not so impressed with the new trend, or Old Spice for that matter. After 20+ years of marriage I'm still trying to find that elusive product that makes ME IRRESISTIBLE!
I should qualify that with an inexpensive product.
FWIW I am finally getting some of my own medicine though. Forever and a day now Mrs RTROSE has heard me go on and on about all things basement and HT, blah, blah, blah............She is now on the hunt for a new vehicle and for about the past month she has been going on and on about cars. Now that might seem like an answer to a mans dream, however we are not talking Porsche, Lotus, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Corvette, or even Camaro, and Mustang. Nope "WE" are looking squarely at the midsize segment. I must qualify that LOOKING/Test driving cars is a lot of fun, but actually working with a salesman and going through all of the other BS is maddening. To date I think we have looked at/test driven the following..........Fusion, Passat, Sonata, 200, Charger, Avenger, Accord, Charger, Malibu, Impala, Cruze, Taurus, Altima, and Camry. The front runners now are the Fusion, Altima, and the Camry. Fun stuff!
