Yeah, those were innerestin', weren't they?

I've decided I've got enough ambient light that I'm going to postpone the whole question. But that's very possibly not true of your room.

Dude you be productive!
Looks like there was no damage despite box lacerations, eh?

A couple of rough bits here or there but nothing major like glass breakage. Took a break after the photo figuring I'd do the rest incrementally over the week bust just got done cleaning the glass and moving then into the room. Last step (other than populating them) is to clean and install the shelf glass.

Are you hinging all the doors on the same side? With my two, I did them on opposite sides to make it easier to access the insides of both at the same time.

Lookin' good! That glass cleaning is quite the chore, isn't it.

All on the same side to avoid having to hunt for the right bit of chrome to poke at and to sidestep the Death-the-Kid paradox when I inevitably realize that, without extreme modifications, I cannot make a 5-wide set of cases open symmetrically.

Of course it's interesting when I first read news pertaining to a store a couple of miles from my home in a Japanese newspaper. Ikea to start home deliveries.

No more renting trucks! No more Tim in my car squashed into a unrecognizable form to make room for his display cases in the back of my Mazda. Although it was kinda fun....

I can fit a dotloff in my trunk if I fold the seat down. I actually got two in my first try

Scott can fit 5 in his trunk if he folds the Tim down.

Nice! Looks like you got a bunch of them, too. I eagerly await seeing how they turn out.

I like the look of that metal grid behind the one case, even if it has nothing to do with it.

Yeah, I got that one from a Blockbuster that was closing, for like 40 bucks. I was driving by and saw it was closing, so I stopped to see if they had any movies or games I wanted for sale. Saw the display case, and asked it was for sale, and they were like yeah, and so I bought it. It is a bit wider then the Dotolf which I like as well

I was stumbling around in the dark the other night, and managed to walk right into one of my dotlof, which hurt like hell, and knocked my ultimate Madoka to the floor. She broke in two, but it looks like it was made in two pieces to begin with. I got something called gorilla glue, would epoxy or superglue work better?
