    Easy Cab (arcade)

    I truly love the design of the sides and am planning to use a 3/4 Oak Veneer to make it appear more western. To reduce the overall weight, I first considered dados and rabbets, but with all the angles involved, I think it would be better to use plastic corner braces to attach the horizontal pieces to the sides. Just a few thoughts before I start.

    Painting MDF is quite the under taking as it tends to really soak up the paint, resulting in the need to apply many coats. I like to avoid MDF and like to stick to plywood. However, when I do use MDF, I usually like to apply a coat of pre-stain of other wood conditioner, then a primer and finally my top coat. That usually does the trick. :)
