Well I didn’t get the rest of the trim added to the carcase this weekend as I had planned. I had a small problem trying to glue and clamp the vertical corner trim pieces because I didn’t have the correct clamps available, but after some trial and error I decided to glue the corner trim pieces together first as a unit, let them dry thoroughly and then attach them to the carcase corners. Yesterday I glued up the individual corner assemblies and tonight I attached the four assemblies to the carcase corners. It’s drying now (sorry no photo).
This weekend I also received some of the hardware that I will be using. I ordered a solid brass hasp and a solid brass piano hinge from Lee Valley and a pair of spring loaded chest handles from Rockler.
Here is the link to the chest handles that I choose for the tack trunk in case you are interested in using them yourself.
