Possible dumb question - I saw you said you have a Roku hooked up to this, so multipurpose intents here? Digital photo frame? Baby monitor display? Another media screen? All of the above?

Regardless, it looks dope, esp with that secret outlet cut in so no visible cables. 5/7 would :fax: again.

Not dumb at all, and thanks for praise.

So yes, the 100% primary purpose of this is a Digital picture frame. I did get a monitor with speakers so in a pinch it can be a HDTV.
Using a roku and the google photo view channel that pulls from the web. so that's what playing all the time. But I can stream anything to it a roku could play. (https://channelstore.roku.com/details/1 ... gle-photos)
I went with a roku for a few reasons. I have 2 already so i could test this on our tv extensively before going forward. I got to stay with one infrastructure for streaming boxes.

Any backup plan for loosing support with google photos and the roku involves a raspberry pi, but this was by far hitting the easy button.

Did you start with something more coarse and finish with 600 or just use 600 by itself?

I need to start a new project but don't know what

Just the 600. The wood itself had a good finish on it to begin with though.

so, we are doing a home gym in the third bedroom.

I'll add some details later, but its 50 a month for my YMCA membershit, if I add back in the wife its nearly 80, so a 1k budget for just myself is a 20 month payback. Also my work will refund 50% of equipment up too 250 bucks.

I've been going to gym consistently for almost 5 years at this point so I think I am far over the 'well i pay for it need to use it' justification and way into the 'I need to do this everyday (I schedule) so I feel awesome the rest of the time.'

So let this games begin. Im sure the larger part of DFD outside the meatheads think I'm :wrong:

Well, you always think we're :wrong: about everything, so it's a correct assumption.
