    There's always the option of "owner distressed." -Or "shipping distressed." The post office seems to be pretty good at it. Just pack it in scouring pads before you send it out.:D

    Great point! Since it has to go to Australia, it would have plenty of time!

    On to the small parts. Each is 1/8 in wide and is half lapped to fit.

    Nice Paint Booth

    your paint booth caught my eye. Is the box fan exausting air (drawing air in through the furnace filter)? Do you have it on as you are painting, or just afterwards to help the item dry? I'm intrigued - and want to build my own now.

    Great paint job - I agree that it is a shame to paint the beautiful wood, but it wouldn't look right if it wasn't blue. great work so far. I'm interested to see how you fit the components...

    I use it to pull air through the box. While I am painting, I have the front open and the fan pulling air. To dry, I pull down the front flap and seal it. Causing the Air go go through the filter.
