Here is the final post for this build.
Got a chance to use up a couple partial cans of primer.
I originally had screw holes on the front cover. I later realized they were not necessary. Cut a couple grooves and laid filler strips in.
I had done some body repair on my truck. I bought the wrong shade of red. This was a perfect chance to use it.
I did have to buy a can of silver paint. That got me to the $20 limit.
Mount the first panel to the front.
Put dowels in. Add a couple gadgets.
Add the rest of the layers. You can see here how the springs needed to bend flush with the bottom of each tool holder.
I used some paste wax to get the parts to slide on the springs smoothly.
My niece likes to make soups (and they are really good!). I thought I need a soup logo on the front. Made a design on the computer and masked it on.
Finally, a set of tongs pulls out the side!
I posted a project with finished views. The springs worked out really well to keep the pieces in place (both open and closed).
The gift was a big hit and greatly appreciated.
