    Custom is always the way to go. I'm sure a local cabinet maker will be glad to make you anything you could imagine!

I'm CONSTANTLY wiping up my drips and drools.
    We seal/clear every stand/canopy with a minimum of 4 coats. It's nearly impossible to make something 100% waterproof without taking extreme measures, but 4 coats of clear will definitely make it last longer. Ensuring to wipe off any water, and cleaning with a good furniture polish will make it last a lifetime.

    Everything on this build was made in house with the exception of the rope molding. I see that you have found the stain type. ;)

    Most of the time, they go smooth without headache. Every now and then something will bug you, but there is nothing like the customer's reaction when I open the trailer doors revealing their new stand/canopy. The guy who got this stand was nearly speechless.

    I've got to say, though, my partner Kyle does 99% of the wood work. I deal with administrative tasks, design, and marketing. Kyle is an amazing carpenter.

    Thank you all for the compliments!
