Here’s how it went.

Detail of the two part base.

Gluing on the bleached corner post.

All the solid wood parts are bleached. The plywood is not bleached, it would be too light.

View of the inside

The two top pieces are the base molding. The two bottom pieces are the top molding.

More bleached components.

Everything on this cart has been bleached.

Next we are finally putting some color on this tree More to come. Thanks for looking.

This is the bleach we used.

Finally done. Thanks for looking.

-- Have a great day.

Looking good as usual. Can’t wait to see the final product.
