Thanks guys.  Iím considering trimming 3 inchís off the base.  For a total finished height of 12Ē .

It's looking friggin amazing so far.  Are you saying the bike will only be 12 inches off the ground?

Ok Kelly you talked me into leaving it at 15" for now.  I can always cut once I actually get a bike on there.

I think you need to make some adjustable legs with walnut dowels to lock them in place.... ;)

That foaming gorilla glue is tough to clean up.  But, thats ok.  Taping off the base really did help a lot.   8)

It really fills the gaps and makes things nice and tight.
