Lids were sanded down, and adjusted a bit.
One of these days, I’ll learn how to make perfectly fitting lids….
Hinges had an issue as well, couple screws decided to come out the other side…hate when that happens. Ground the tips of the screws down, will replace when the shorter ones arrive. End of the box looked a bit too plain…dug up some thin Walnut scrap and sawed some 1” wide strips…
Once I figured out how to cut the angles…nails and glue to hold each piece in place. Went downtown to pick up a couple latches to keep them lids closed. Once the strips were on, then figure out where the latches would go..
I had to get the two piece far enough apart, so that it would draw the two lids together. gave everthing a good sanding down, ran the block plane around on the Walnut. Once everything was nice and smooth, time for the “Blend” to be brushed on..
Aka..Witch’s Brew. A 1 quart can of finish, containing every leftover stain, varnish and BLO in the shop. I don’t keep a bunch of almost empty cans sitting around, they get poured into the can, stir it up and use the “Blend”
Well, that concludes this little blog. Wood working part is done. Thanks for following along.
