Trunk Lid Progress...

I should have known that if I spent time (longer than I'd like to admit) painfully making Paint diagrams to show the "plan" for the Trunk lid that Dad would have just banged it all together 8 hours later.


I popped my head into the workshop to see if any progress had been made and saw this:
He even already dug out some old whiteboard and mirror from the basement stash for the lid-flap.  The basement usually yields most widgets and pieces for projects but I thought for sure the whiteboard/mirror would require a trip to the store.  Not so.  The whiteboard and mirror will eventually be attached to the other side of the lid, so they are vertical when the lid flap is closed.

Anyway.  All that's left is to add the little "lips" on the front of the cubbies to help keep items secured and we'll be ready for the show this weekend.  I'm going to hold off on staining and varnishing until we decide what the final arrangement is..


  1. Can your dad make me a trunk too? It looks fab, totally have a case of the jellies right now!

  2. Dang go dad! That looks awesome!

  3. Definitely jealous. I have a Stanley trunk haha. But I feel like I'd need a posse to move that bad boy and I normally fly solo when it comes to loading and unloading. Hope you love it at the show!

  4. So awesome. The boots fitting in the lid is the coolest.

  5. I've never used a tack box, but I am well jealous of yours!
    Go Dad & go you for the work & design gone into that. What a mean looking piece of kit.

    Looks fab!
