The first picture is the bottom of the box with dividers fitted. They are still a bit tight, but I am going to sand down one end to make them fit for the final fitting.
Here I have attached the lid with two brass hinges. The dividers are still not attached.
I decided to stain the case with dark walnut.
I am leaving the dividers a natural color for a contrast. I shall let the case dry for now. I may put another application of stain on it before the final finish. I will also get a clasp for the front.

Polycrylic: first coat.
I lined the case with red felt.
April 10 Update
|I put a latch on the front.|
I have three straights. Just four more to fill up my seven day set.
