Hi!

Today I started making my storage solution for ALL expansions!

I've taken some photos but will add them by night.

As promised this is my storage solution being made!

Here we can see 2 50 x 40 , 4 50 x 7,5 and 4 38 x 7,5 boards. I haven't used the hammer and the nails yet, as they were too big (I'll buy smaller next time).



Here the first half of the container is assembled. I used glue to fix all the parts together, so I can, at a later time, insert some nails to it.



Here we can see both boxes on top of each other, the way it will look like when finished.



It seems that it'll become bulky in the end, more like a box than a "suit case". The container's total dimensions will be 50 x 40 x 17, more than capable of supporting all the expansions, enabling a direct "play from the box" solution.

The next step is to fix the nails and paint the boxes, so they'll look like darker wood (varnish). I'll also start gluing the internal dividers.

Impressions? I'd really like to hear them!

Today I started nailing and applying varnish to the container.

This picture is my first varnish apply. Not so pretty as I'd imagined.





Now completly varnished.



Nail detail.



I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see it dry, as it is somewhat wet now. Next weekend I'll add hinges and a lock.

Comments?

I like it. It seems large but if it holds absolutely everything, and organized by expansion then it's worth the size. I think the varnish came out well.

I think I've made a mistake regarding thickness.

Currently the design is 10mm thick. I already had to bough special nails so the board would not break.

However I'm begining to believe that 15mm should be better, at least in the laterals.

I'll finish this board in the next weeks and post the results here.
