So after several coats of shellac, and lots of time spent doing a bunch of other things, I finally found a few min to grab my camera and take some pictures while installing the hinges.
I have done this several times on this site, so there is not much new and exciting going on…
Mark out the shape of the hinge, small razor saw, knife, chisel and small router plane..
Like a glove!!!
UUUmmmm… opps. Stupid stupid stupid!!!!! Oh well… client wont care. I can fix that easily, just a small shim of maple that I can glue in and plane to the right size, will be noticeable when the lid is opened, but oh well… that’s what I get for not paying attention to what I was doing.
Other than that… looks pretty good to me.
I love how the oil and shellac have made the figure in the maple pop and gives the shell some real texture.
I will get the hardware in the next few days and install it, and will even try to finish the inside so I can finally call this complete.
Thanks again for reading.
