Ok, not quite done tonight, but I'm between coats of varnish and all the flat surfaces are in use...
Table finally standing on its legs -- you can see the CNC work.
The aforementioned legs, which I took photos of the assembly of without the memory card in. Pure win! They're passable legs. This table is worth of REAL legs.
Cutting the foam padding for under the antennas.
Antennas in their cubbies and USB cables run.
Antenna wires connected. No point in having seated the antennas. They all need to come back out. These braided cables need looped gently, and you need to start at the receiver end and trace them into place, loop them, turn the antennas over a few times to work out any kinks, and then put them in place. Next time (HA!) I'd put all the receiver end connectors in first, then run them out to the antennas, and then put them in place. At least one of the receivers was in a bad place to not quite be able to loop the antenna cable, and it's not crimped, but it's looped tighter than I'd like.
Closeup again with the connected antenna wires. Perhaps you can see my point above.
Wires routed from the center, and painters tape to do a little crowd wrangling.
Internal electronics assembled. It looks like a lot of tape, but it's just a big "X" over each of the places where they loop, and a small piece at the beginning and end of each run. I'll probably run a strip over the trough for each run, just so nothing escapes before the playing surface comes down.
The racetrack is on coat 3 of poly, so it might get done tonight. It's almost time for sanding and coat 4. Coat 4 might do it. I might break out the sprayer for coat 4. I might not.
I've been avoiding doing the railing. Railings suck, air compressor staple-gun or not. I did, however, buy a nice electric carving knife for it today, deciding that foam cutters were either too expensive, too flimsy, or too taxing on my general laziness to build myself with a guitar string and a battery.
Perhaps another update tonight, else probably Saturday before anything big.
The felt is still at the artist, although we're close.
