Finally, I’m getting down to making the boxes that hold all the stuff that makes FOMOphobia happen. This has been stressing me out because it is a considerable amount of work and it is the eleventh hour.
The first thing I did was take careful measurements and build a cut sheet. I included dimensions, hole locations and diameters, and a few places where holes how to be counterbored from behind for switches and plugs.
A few places I counterbored holes to accept switches and plus so they’d stick out enough to accept their mounting nut. Let me tell you, a good drill press with a stop is a good thing.
Finally I was able to put the boxes together. Glued and screwed. I painted them, then mounted them to the back of the icons. (I realize now you’ve never seen the front of the wood inlayed icons! — was I being perverse or just keeping a sense of mystery in not showing them to you?).
I guess you will see them soon since the show is Friday.
