  Re: Frame & Panel Mini Chest, by bandit571 (A start up.... :wink...)
Taken out of the clamps ( and didn't fall apart Cool ) then claened the corners up.. Winkgrin 
   
Worked all the way around.   Sanders and the #3c plane....even a bit of hand sanding...
Gave the entire outside a seal coat of Amber Shellac..
   
Long sides and..
   
and the ends...was just going to do the back, but...
   
Might as well do all four sides.    Laid out parts to make a lid for this thing..
   
May try some more this evening, after the shellac is done....will see IF I feel like tomorrow, when I get back home. Rolleyes

Stay tuned.. Winkgrin

Lid was made last night....and still sitting in the clamps...
   
Too doped up right now, to do any work in the shop.....T.E.E. scan, and a CT scan with contrast..... No 
   
Will have to let this sit a while....until I am allowed back in the shop...nap time is needed, right now.. No

Before I left the house the other day, knowing the shop would be off-limits for a while,  I brought the box, lid, hinges and other items upstairs.   I figured I could at least sit and work on the hinges..... Rolleyes  
   
Tiny hinges....wait until you see the screws Winkgrin 

Lid had been sanded, and a bit of shaping done, before it came up the steps... Cool 
   
Still needs the hinges installed, and a coat of Amber Shellac.   Set the lid on the box, about where it will be going.. Winkgrin 
   
Not sure IF the lid would need a handle....same with the box.....box MAY get  handles on the ends...unless that would make it look too "busy" Confused 

Will update on the project, and me.....as things go along.....still a bit sore, today.   

Stay tuned Winkgrin

I like it and can not wait to see it done.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Getting, slowly....hinges are installed, now.. Winkgrin 
   
Used a few lightweight, cordless tools.. Rolleyes 
   
Handles are installed, and the rest of the Amber Shellac applied.. Cool  
   
Lid has a handle, too Winkgrin  
   
Need to buff out the shellac, before the varnish  goes on..
   
We'll see how this goes...may get a short chain for the lid, maybe? Confused 
Stay tuned

Well, dug around and found the "Free" brush.....bought a huge plastic tub of tools and other goodies ( $5)  and this brush was in the tub... Winkgrin 
   
Might as well use it.    Figured I needed a way to hold the lid open, and not get varnish on my fingers... No  
   
Cut a length of chain, found a pair of the smallest "cup hooks" I could dig up....Yankee #41 to drill a few pilot holes... Cool 
   
Had to cut the chain again, for final length ( 2 links.. Rolleyes )  then crimped the hooks closed...
   
So, now the lid will stay opened, without me holding it Winkgrin 

After the finish is done, and my son clears the top of this thing off.. Uhoh 
   
This box will be sitting on top, then he can fill it up as he wants.   At least the grain matches Winkgrin 

Will see how the varnish does, tomorrow.....stay tuned.. Winkgrin

Calling this Project done... Winkgrin  
   
Shame this is the back of the box Rolleyes  
   
Ends don't look to bad, do they Confused  
   
Front is a bit on the showy side, though..
Varnish has been rubbed down smooth, but not glossy Cool 
     
Insides were also given a coat of varnish.... Cool  
   
I guess I can close the book ( lid? Laugh ) on this project.  

Thanks for looking in.

Nice work.  So what is the next project?
