Sanding & Power Strip
I sort of skipped a step but I think it is probably self explanatory but I used 1x6 pin boards to face the outside using a 45 degree miter cut on the corners after that was in place I had to sand the edges mostly because I suck a miter cuts but its nothing a sander and some time cant fix.
As you can see the corners are not exactly perfect to fix this I used a 14 dollar special sander to cut down the corners and smooth the edges out easy cheesy..
The next step is starting the finishing touches this part is power. There is nothing I hate more then extension cords so what I decided to do is take a rack mount power strip cut a hole in the top and slide the power strip right into the bench.
To do this I was going to use a jig saw then a friend of min reminded me how easy a circular saw can work when used right. Make sure you are very careful and use protective glasses when cutting out the lines.
To do the ends I used an old fashion wood chisel and a hammer. I will not be fastening this to the top at this time because in the end I will have a Plexiglas top covering the entire surface that is why when putting the 1 x 6 edging on i left a lip between 1/8 and 1/4 inch to hold the plexy in place.
