« Part 11: Spline-al Tap Part 12 of What To Do With This Board? series Part 13: Stained »

Hey Guys!

Sorry to have gotten off schedule, but I helped move a friend on Friday, and was too tired and sore to work on the box yesterday. Left the house at 9am, didn’t get back home until Midnight…......

But today’s a new day, and there’s progress to report!

First I stained the lid. Gave it three coats of Darrell Peart’s Greene & Greene stain formula.

Next, I flush trimmed the splines on the box carcase. I used the flush-trim saw from a previous installment, this time using it for its intended purpose…....!

Next, I sanded the splines smooth, starting with 100 grit, then 120, 150, and 220.

Since the box carcase was now finish sanded, I needed to wet it, sand back the raised grain, then repeat this process one more time, in preparation for staining.

The last step for today is gluing on the feet.

Once they’re glued on, the box carcase/feet assembly will be ready for staining! After that will be finishing!

We’ll get to the staining, and deciding on either clear or amber shellac tomorrow.

See ya then!
