More case work

We are using a time-honored method of filling in dents and dings in the wooden case--Bondo! After the filler cured, we use a sander.

Here Paul sands the bentside.

Two coats of primer were put on and sanded smooth. Karen sands the spine. We attached the sander to a vacuum to keep the dust to a minimum.

Here a technique is used to sand the top edge of the case. The board spans the case, and the sandpaper smooths the top and makes it perpendicular to the sides.

Battens span the front and rear of the lid flap as well as the "wing" portion of the lid for support and strength. Here Elizabeth and Paul attach one of the battens using their fine clamping skills--and are cleaning up as they go.
