Working on my OSMTMs and I've learned (twice) that glue-ups are frustrating! Going to try a mitered box setup next instead of butt joints. Dec 5, 2017

        @philipmorgan Thanks! Those look like they'd help a ton.

        @Cspirou That's a really good point... I've been trying to glue up all the sides and the back at once, and finding that I barely have enough time to get it in place before it shifts or dries out of alignment. I'm a new woodworker so I'll take any advice I can get!

        Make sure to avoid the fast drying glue. I always buy the stuff that takes longer to dry because I know I am making adjustments. Im not a factory so no need to do things fast.

        Great advice. I bought Titebond III (10 minute cure time) for that exact purpose. My biggest issue (besides doing it all at once) is just that I am not experienced enough yet, but I'll keep progressing. I'm really excited to finish this project so I can post a build thread!

        Did you order stuffing? The regular MT's don't sound good until you put a couple handfuls in.

        Yep! Ordered about a pound from Amazon. I'm planning on doing a white high-gloss finish and documenting the build so I can post here later :D
