Lots 'o help! My wife volunteered to help paint, Fred and his wife stopped by Roosevelt to check things out and she said, "Is there anything we can do to help out today?"
She didn't have to ask twice!
The two of them figured out a procedure to disconnect the CD and floppy drives, remove the hard drive and disconnect the fan--allowing future reconnection if the computer (serving as a thin client) warms up too much--a concern of Freds.
Maria primed then black touch-up painting on the frames where I had sanded the corners to smooth them off. She also stained all of the edges of the sub-table top and they really look sharp! Now we will simply poly these edges of the plywood making them tough and thus much more difficult for fidgeting fingers to flay.
