« Part 1: Teaser Part 2 of Asian Style Box... series no next part

Today I made the inserts for the Teaser Box… Forrest Green felt over plywood….

Spray adhesive from the craft shop..

Looks cool hey…

And then just slide them into the box…

Very smooth…

More tomorrow.

Interesting box, can’t wait to see it finished. The felt work looked great too!

The green is such a jade color… so Asian… and so attractive.
I too am looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Looking good Larry! Out of inexperience I always attached my felt directly to the box and wondered why it always seemed to give me fits. Then one day I stumbled on how you are “Suppose” to do it…. Ohhh don’t I feel silly now. From here on out I am going this route and hope my stuff comes out as good as this one Larry…

Hey, really cool to see the play by play. When I get back to box-making… I think I might give this a shot.

That green is a perfect color! My question is: do you put a dab of glue on the back of the plywood before you insert it into the box or is it just a press fit? I’m going to use this method when I get started with making boxes again.
