« Part 25: Mission lacquer count down... Part 26 of Hope Chest for Daughter #2 series no next part

I finally wrapped up the finish with three coats of padded blonde shellac (4 on the lid) and then three coats of satin sheen rattle can lacquer (4 on the lid).

Hardware installation…. full mortise lock, recessed strike plate, hinge and lid stays was all tricky and took much longer than it should have.

the cat seems to approve….

Thanks for following along this 3 year odyssey and for all the encouraging comments and helpful hints.
