    Just ribbing you a little Steven. In truth I am really impressed with how much you accomplish and how diversified the work is. I can't match your pace. I can barely keep up with your posts. Great fun, keep it up.

    That tray was looking a little "Plain-Jane" ...Decided to dress it up a bit...
    Set up the #45 as a beading plane, with a #23 bead cutter.

    Fence covers the "outside " quirk. Skates are right behind each quirk. No depth stop needed.
    Clamped the tray into the vise, and worked along the top edge, starting at the far end..
    IMG_2199 (640x480).jpg
    And worked my way back towards me...

    Should have done the "short" sides first. Blew out one pin..rest of the corners weren't too hateful...
    IMG_2200 (640x480).jpg
    Had to look to keep the plane vertical, and had to clear the cutter alot..

    Maple flavoured Ramon Noodles?
    Did not take all that long, today..to get all four edges done...

    If needed, I may sand the whole tray....for now it can sit in the chest...

    Maybe tomorrow, I can apply a few coats of Amber shellac, inside and out?
    Stay tuned...

    Thank you..

    Single Brain Cell Sketch Up has been working on a way to add a "keeper" to keep the lid opened. May be a Maple "Bar" that pivots up and into a "socket" on the inside of the lid? Then have the bar just drop down onto the tray's rail, when not in use? Picked up a length of chain this morning, will see how THAT goes..

    Almost done, stay tuned...

    Chain was 16' out of the package! Had to cut it for length with a pair of bolt cutters. Two pilot holes for the two screws.....chain is now installed....

    May slip back to the shop, after bit...and see about milling that brace....we'll see. Film @ 2300 hrs....

    Well, it is 2300 hrs..somewhere....

    Chain is installed, and a brace is made. Brace engages a "D" shaped keeper. Chain can be tighter?
    IMG_2208 (640x480).jpg
    I lean the lid back to tighten the chain. The brace will then be able to dis-engage the keeper...
    IMG_2209 (640x480).jpg
    Then it can be folded down. Chain goes around it, to make sure the chain goes into the chest.
    Maybe some finishing tomorrow? May have to do it IN the shop....that should be a fun time...

    Blanket Chest has been moved upstairs ( whew, heavier than it looks ) and a "Photo Shoot" has been done. Calling this project done.

    Open the lid, engage the Lid Brace
    inside, lid opened.jpg
    Nothing inside, yet. Tray will slide all the way to the brace, if need be. Chain to keep the lid from going back too far.

    Corner view. White line is an extension cord, for the Boss' light on the end table.

    Thanks for following along. Not sure WHAT the next project will be....yet.
