    The friend I built the other 122L sealed sub for got around to finishing his. I thought it looked pretty cool and I told him I would post a picture here for all to see.

    He used TiteBond II wood glue to attach the individual wooden tiles to the sub. He did it side at a time. For clamping pressure, he used a 3/4" piece of MDF the size of the sub with a bag of play sand on top.

    Now I need to get to it, and finish my "naked" sub...

    Too bad it's not quite 8x8, which would allow for some checkers or chess play on top the sub.

    That looks super neat-o..

    It would have been real neat to finish the sides in gloss
    black WilsonArt with the wood feet and a true 8x8 Chess
    Top and then glue a complete set of polished and frosted
    glass chess pieces on top! (well, I suppose you could sit
    them there, but how long would they stay?)

    Again very neat! [​IMG]

    Man, that would have been so cool if it could have doubled as a chess table. But it look great nevertheless.

    Yeah, the chessboard would have been cool. He has had the tiles for a few years. He was going to use them on a table top but never did.

    It really goes well with his other furniture in the room. Everything is natural wood color with a cubistic (literally) influence.

    The only thing about the chess idea is it would be only for looks unless you wanted to pull the sub out of the corner to play chess or checkers.

    Looks cool though!

    Well, it could be like those old football games back in the 70's,the ones with the vibrating football field, plastic players, and the felt footballs. You could set the chess pieces up, turn on LOTR and let the game play itself.

    (it would probably work about as well as those POS football games did...[​IMG])

    Very original finish, I like it alot! I think it would be pretty cool to finish the top the same size as a chess board, so you could play chess on it, haha.

    Ronnie,

    I am seriously ROTFLMAO!!!

    I have the distinct notion that this would in fact work much
    better than the ol vibrating foosball game ever did... [​IMG]
