While reading all the suggestions for things to do and keep in mind once I retired, I found a great suggestion (Thanks—SteveMI). I had some mini-badges around that I had thought about using and I decided to put a few on some boxes. One is finished and the other is still in progress.
This is a simple one drawer band saw box made out of Poplar. I used analine dye to get the blue I was looking for for the police look. I also used navy blue flocking on the inside of the drawer. The box is about 5” tall, 6” wide and about 5” deep. I looked through all of the available pulls on Amazon and saw this “shark tooth” pull in a brushed pewter. I really like the look and will use this great pull again in the future.
Thanks for looking!!
