*Note to my readers—this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times. It has consumed my shop time since February. That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months. Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details.*
Once the lid was read for finishing, I decided to add feet to the box to give it a little better look. Just sitting on the ground wasn’t doing it for me. I settled on little wooden wheels I got from Michael’s for another project that I can’t even remember now.
Next it was time to do the felt lining. I don’t want Mom’s hard won medals just rattling around down there on the plywood bottom and maple and walnut sides. So I got some maroon felt and sprayed adhesive on the bottom, then put it down and trimmed it to size:
Then I did the same with the two little boxes (remember them? They’ve been sitting under the workbench for over week now just waitnig…). Here they are just before I lined them with the maroon (one of the colors from Florida State University, Mom’s alma mater):
Sure hope it isn’t a train…
