I really wanted to enter this box that I built specifically for this challenge, but today (Saturday) and next are both committed to other things. The long range weather forecast says it won’t be very comfortable in the shop in the evening with the garage door up the rest of the month. Lots of hand work to do . . . sanding and finishing and yet just 12 more days to the deadline. Errrrg!

I feel the same crunch on my 2×4 project. Not sure I am going to make it.

Tick Tock, Ticjk Tock

I’ll have something to show, but it may not be quite finished.

I’m with you on finishing and even starting.

Took the day off yesterday and spent probably nine hours on my box. I’m feeling better about getting something posted.

First coat of Deft Spray Laquer last night.

Debating hardware options – catches, pulls, etc.

I’ve made two different styles of wooden pulls for drawers and haven’t liked either when done.
