Bible box week five - the finishing touches

This is the fifth and final episode in the Bible Box project. This episode focuses on the final assembly, hardware, and finish. There is even a cool tip on cleaning up glue squeeze out in small spaces. I also decided to go with a very traditional finish very close to the suggestion in the Popular Woodworking article. I'm very happy with the results, as the finish looks classy, but doesn't detract from the joinery and construction. Overall I'm quite happy with how this project turned out, and frankly in the end it wasn't nearly as difficult as I had anticipated. In fact, had I gone with something like pegs for the feet, this project could be done rather quickly (even in time for the holidays if you were to start now).

Rob, you did a really great job and
it is nice to look at this video.
But I personally find that your going
to fast with some off your explanations.
You have all your steps in your head and you know what your gone do, but the viewers not, certainly not the beginner woodworkers.
Sorry, but the rest is great, keep on going.

Greeting Schummie,
