Recycling a cutlery box

Post by wulliam » Wed Apr 19, 2017 10:12 pm

In hopes of great future finds I have started a storage case. I've bought an old rather battered cutlery box from an auction site:
This afternoon I sanded it down and gave it a couple of coats of varnish:
Having removed most of the felt and holders for the original cutlery, I've now added a layer of slanted racks (covered in decent cloth) in each of the lower drawer and the upper section:
The only task remaining is to make two more lift-out sections, one for each part of the box, so that I have four sections in total.

And after that I just need to fill it!

Kind regards,

Best find: QV 1864 (Die 19) Shilling
Coins Bronze Silver Gold
George VI S2 George V S2 Victoria B1 S1 George III B1
