thanks, so the velvet ends inside the groove?

are those pocket holes i see in the first pic? did you plug them later, because i don't see any in the finished pics?

last question: is that a 2x4? did you run it through a planer to get rid of the rounded edges?

sorry about all the questions, i'm a very curious newbie.

No worries on the questions.

Yes, velvet wrapped on the ply, glued down on the face and stapled and trimmed on the edges.

Yes pocket holes, plugged them before sand and stain

Yes ran through the planer to get it down to 1 inch thick.

At $2.67 per 96 inch board, it keeps my cost pretty low and pine doesn't look to shabby if you do it right

I think it looks terrific, but, tempered, or non-tempered glass? I work for a window and door company, and I cringe whenever I see a display project done without using tempered glass.

I don't know if it is or isn't. The packaging didnt specify. It's "Clear replacement glass" from HD. What's the difference between tempered and not?

Tempered glass will shatter into about a million pieces if broken( unless it's a laminated tempered glass), and non-tempered will leave you with mainly larger fragments. I'll note here too that tempered glass is "supposed" to have very few sharp edges when broken.

One thing have noticed, though, about tempered glass: it will shatter more easily if in a vertical position if it is heavily jarred and the edges are not totally defect free. A small fish eye defect and a sudden jarring, suddenly you've got a lot of small glass to clean up!
