    Thanks, the cabinet is really easy to make mate took me about 2 hours I guess then about an hour to stick the laminate on. Measuring and drilling the pilot holes is what takes the time plus I had to keep sticking my drill battery on charge lol

    Danny, how easy is it to work with the veneer? Debating a new stand build for a custom optiwhite. Have done a stand before but can't decide whether to try the veneer route, want as clean lines as possible and think veneer will help but concerned that it also has the potential to cock up the most.

    I have less patience than a 2 year old with ADHD lol It's really quite easy mate to be honest as long as you take your time.
