« Part 11: The Lid, or, No Tablesaw, No Problem! Part 12 of Medal Chest series Part 13: Let's Get Shellacked »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details.

Once the lid was read for finishing, I decided to add feet to the box to give it a little better look.  Just sitting on the ground wasn’t doing it for me.  I settled on little wooden wheels I got from Michael’s for another project that I can’t even remember now.IMAG3088

They will be attached with brass woodscrews through the bottom corners of the box.IMAG3109

Like so.

Next it was time to do the felt lining.  I don’t want Mom’s hard won medals just rattling around down there on the plywood bottom and maple and walnut sides.  So I got some maroon felt and sprayed adhesive on the bottom, then put it down and trimmed it to size:IMAG3110

Then I did the same with the two little boxes (remember them?  They’ve been sitting under the workbench for over week now just waitnig…).  Here they are just before I lined them with the maroon (one of the colors from Florida State University, Mom’s alma mater):

Sure hope it isn’t a train…
