So, I've decided that I will be very productive this week, and I did a bunch of stuff today, part of which, was buying a sheet of 3/4" MDF, and getting it cut to 23"*21" shelves for a flexy rack. Now, I was wondering, for those of you who have made a flexy, how far from the edge did you drill your holes? I left about 2-3" extra on each side of my largest piece of equipment (receiver), so that should be enough space so that I shouldn't have to worry about stress cracking the MDF, right? Other than that, it's all pretty simple it seems, so my last concern is the finish...I decided to go with MDF still, due to monetary constraints...but I've never actually finished any wood, using a stain or just paint, so are there any suggestions as to what I should look for? I just want a traditional wood color, probably anything would look fine with the black of my components. On a side note...just got off the phone with another local HTF guy, and I should also have my sonosub Tempest finished next week. SWEET.
