Clamshell Box: Week 2

Tags : 

Week two went better than week one did.

I think.

I re-cut the board pieces, and they turned out great. The books fit and everything!

See! Not like last time.

Then I measured my cloth (twice) and started gluing it on.

This is what it looked like after adhering the sides.

Looking good!

I should probably mention that reading the directions on glue is important. I made a 1/4 cup of concrete mess by not reading the instructions. It always has to be something, doesn’t it?

Please ignore those corners. I don’t want to talk about them.

As you can see, for the most part, my measurements worked. Yay!

Now for the moment of truth.

Why????

I’m not sure what happened, but the bottom is now a little too small and the top flares out when I put the books in. Either I didn’t leave quite enough wiggle room, or I pulled something when I glued.

Likely both.

Back to the drawing board.

Check back next week for an update on my sanity…
