Well Jimsky didnt had enough strips to finish the cratings so tomorrow the second order will come in to finish them. I started for the 3 time with the cratings because i didnt like them and with some help of Jimsky they will be much better in hope. The dark one was first atempt. The midcollor second and the lightest one the new.

Does anyone know where they make the plastic decorations from? Its smells so chemical whit sanding and it breaks easyaly. Even with a small rasp the tiny dust parts smells strong.

The New cratings are finished. Took me 3 days because a lot of pain in the neck but its done. Dont know if i have to paint the white parts with walnut varnish or leave them the way it is now. Please help with this choice.....

@Pat71 Those gratings looks very good! Patience and repetition make them looks really nice! Bravo. As for the finishing part, IMHO II like the contrast between the walnut and the white wood color. I am a big fan of Oil use as the varnishing material. But the decision and last word are always yours! :)

Tnx maarten. I will use your advice in read in a blog to steam some small lasercut parts first before taking them out. Broke a lot of cratings by cutting them out. So had to buy this New ones but they are a big improvement.
