Box #7 for 67 Superspeed

I used cedar I got from Chuck in Concord, NC, to make this box for a 1967 Black Handle Superspeed. It is made of the same wood that the Jayaruh #303 is made from. In the first picture, I have completed the assembly of the box including a velvet lining. Next, I will have to disassemble it and put a finish on it and then reassemble it. So, all I lack is finishing up.





Lining removed.

Hardware removed.

First coat of polycrylic is applied to the outside of the box.
After two coats fo polycrylic, I reassembled the box, and it is ready to go.
