Bandsaw box complete!
I flocked the inside of the drawers of the bandsaw box this morning (green) and put on the final coat of Waterlox. Other than engraving a message to my wife on the bottom, this project is complete!
The flocking process was very easy. I used the DonJer brand system that I bought at Woodcraft. Just put a thick coat of emerald green flocking adhesive paint onto the wood, and then while still wet (15 minutes) spray the loose flocking through the DonJer sprayer ($4.95…basically two cans placed on top of each other, one can with holes in the lid and one can that contains the flock with no holes) with a pumping motion. The flock is forced out in a fine mist of fibers and coats the wet paint. 12 hours later, vacuum off the loose fibers and you are done. Easy and professional looking. I really like the results. Simple, cheap and effective.
Box is mahogany with ebony pulls and Waterlox finish.
