A few months ago, I helped my friend build a nice flexy rack for his A/V equipment. The build was so sturdy, and the whole thing took less than a couple of hours to put together. Needless to say, I was impressed... and very thankful for all the HTF members who posted instructions and hints for construction. The only problem we had, was in terms of finish. We coated the whole thing in flat black paint. Unfortunately, the aesthetics of the rack leave something to be desired. Blotchy looking paint (even after 3 coats) and it attracts a lot of dust and dirt. Has anyone built a flexy and finished the MDF (very absorbant) wood and been happy with the results? If so, please explain how you did this. Pictures would be awesome too. I plan on building one for myself, and looks do matter for me. One guy posted some instructions for a marble-like finish. http://www.hometheaterforum.com/uub/...14-001116.html It looks awesome in the pictures. Has anyone else tried this. Please help me figure out how to make my future flexy look sexy!
