For the stars a made a single template. Drew my grid and traced the star 50 times. I used a wood burner to create a border. Next I painted the stars with a water based clear. The Burned outline kept the clear from bleeding. After the clear had fully cured I used Royal Blue Rit Fabric Dye over the entire field. The dye will not stain the clear. After wiping it left the stars natural.

Great design, and excellent craftsmanship. How does it lock up? Locking slides, or some kind of catch/latch?

It locks in the open position with a simple flip latch. Have not installed the Closed Lock assembly yet. I plan to use a magnetic lock.

In order to keep the metals in place (magazines and such) I installed 1/2 inch magnets into the back board.
