Step 9: Finishing Touches/ Troubleshooting
After the the polyurethane is completely dry you can add the finishing touches, I added a copper pendent to the center and some corner accents that i picked up from hobby lobby.
I painted them with gold paint and super glued them into place.
To finish the edges on top where the wood meets the plastic i cut and bent a brass rod and glued it into place.
On the back of the laptop I used some rub-on Old English lettering for my name and glued some rivets into place over the screw holes.(Note: Keep in mind that this may cause problems with upgrading later on)
Then apply one last coat of polyurethane to each side to lock in everything.
And your done!
You can fix small mistakes with the placement of the wood with wood filler, be sure to stain the wood filler so it matches.
If you get super glue where you don't want it, invest in some de-bonder to clean it up.
