Photography ~ Gear/Kit–Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 [DIY Shelf–Build Complete], 12/29 @ 4:00 PM EST

Okay, Holes are cut, hooks & rings are in place, even a bag to drop thinks in.

My red lens flashlight [a gift from the Artis Family] even has a place.  The grommets give the holes a more professional look. They have covers as well. I’ll have to find two 1″ grommets for the 2 bare holes. The bag for lens caps and other miscellaneous items.

Next is final sanding, painting, and trimming [trim due 12/31]. I’ll place o-rings beneath the shelf around the grommets.

  1. I changed my mind on the type of finish for the tripod tray. I’ll use an orangish stain–Colonial Maple 223 by MinWax [sample below]. We are keeping the grain versus covering it with orange paint. Stay tuned…


    The picture below [taken @ 4:30 AM EST], after the first coat of stain.I will apply one more coat of stain [because that is all I have] and then several coats of Tung Oil.
