« Part 7: Lid installed, handle options... Part 8 of Maple Frame & Panel Box series no next part

And about ready to post as a Project. Handles went on…using the same Yankee #41 push drill to do pilot holes..

Big handles on the ends..

Went with this for the lid. Shellac applied to the lid, and a few spots that I missed earlier….

Needed a way to hold this lid opened, like this….without using something to prop it open..

Some black chain, cut to length, and a pair of the smallest cup hooks I could dig up…

Once I got the final length ( missed it by two lengths..long) I crimped the hooks down tight, to keep the chain in place.

I finally found the brush for the varnish. So, this morning, a coat of gloss poly was brushed on..

Allowed to dry, and then rubbed out..then added some feet..

I think I can call this project…done.

Thanks for following along
