In the back part i fighure i would resin and glass it all in. Then i will cut my doors in after it is finished. That way i will have two doors that i can use to make to coverthat will be the at the some contour as the holes so how does it look so far

Looks like very good wood work. It looks good and is starting to take shape.

Mr stanton it looks pretty good. Especially for your first project. Looks like you got the fleece good and tight, thats good. As for the question you had about your resin geling.  The reason it was geling was because your first batch was starting to dry in the bottom while you mixed your second batch. This is what I do on all my glass projects go to walmart, or lowes, home depot. One of those stores they all have small plastic paint buckets, they're like 40 cents a piece or something. I get like three of them, then I mix my first batch, after im done with that bucket, if the resin is starting to harden while im using it or if it runs out or w/e. I just sit that bucket to the side and let it start drying, then start with a fresh bucket, and mix my next batch.  Once your all the way through however many you have your first buckets should be drying. I usually kind of squeeze the bucket a little and the resin should start cracking once its dry enough, it will all pop out then you have a clean fresh bucket to start with again.

well here i have got the console smooth so i threw a coat of high build primer on it to see any small imprefections. Then I cut out the two doors for the game cube and the storage compartment. I would like theres doors to hinge open and close so i am working on getting a lip about 3/4" all the way around the doors. there is a description above the pictures
these are the doors i cut out

Looks very good stanton I like the build of the doors cool idea.  I thought of something you may have already thought of, but you could line those drawers with felt and it would look awesome.
