    Hmm, seems to be working out ok (though I got sloppy with the glue on the end there...was kinda ticked )



    Built-up for the roundover on the port ends...



    Both...



    Got the 45's in for the corners and port center...



    And got the 2nd layer to the front mounted...

    45'ed the port corner...





    Had to wedge a piece of mdf in the port to keep the kerfs from coming together etc/holding right, so they arent sitting perfect but u get the picture...
