    My new stand (Work in progress)

    I don't have much free time lately so it's been a slow building process!

    This is how she looks... Will look much better after I'm done!







    I know it may looks like shit but give me the weekend to work on it!

    if that's particle board your asking for trouble... Unless it's some special water proof stuff. If not it will absorb moisture like a sponge. Coat it with SEVERAL coats of a good water proofer

    Douglas fur or spruce plywood will do the job nicely. No plywood other then marine ply (VERY COSTLY) or Pressure treated ( VERY UGLY) is designed for constant contact with water.
