« Part 6: Preparing for Easy Assembly... Part 7 of Tool Tote for Tyler - series Part 8: It's Finished! Assembly Instructions. »

Better late than Never…

OK, it’s time for the Finishing part!

Finally!!

1. I gave ALL Parts a few coats of BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil as from Home D). This took a little time because I had to wait 2-4 days after each coat to be sure it cured good before putting another coat on them.

2. I wanted to give just the Bottom piece, on the Lettering side, more protection because it would be taking most of the abuse. I have applied several coats of Polyurethane Semi Gloss only on that surface letting cure at least a day followed by a light sanding and another coat…. I’m still in the process of doing that… So far, I have applied 4 coats… will do a few more.

Stay tuned…

Thanks, Dave… I just hope the boy doesn’t destroy it before he gets to the TOOL stage! LOL

I built mine when he was 6 months old. Wood lasts better than you think.

That’s why I used White Oak! LOL

When do you think the TOOL age sets in? :)

All’s well that ends well Joe and it did end well. What a pity that I probably won’t be around to see it filled with tools.
