Re: [MedievalSawdust] feast basket
- Another way to hide the plywood is to take copper flashing cut into 2" strips and tacked over the edges hiding the non-grainJose----- Original Message -----From: Oakes, GeorgeSent: Wednesday, April 11, 2007 6:15 AMSubject: RE: [MedievalSawdust] feast basketYou could do that.If you mitered the edges of the box to 45deg. that would hide the end grain, if you put the bottom inside of the sides that would hide that grain, the only grain you would have showing would be the top, which you could add a 2" wide real oak around the edges, and the top of the sides when the lid is up, and you could use iron on Oak edge banding. Its real oak wood in strips usualy 3/4 wide, with an iron on adheasive. you simply cut the length you need and iron it right on. it takes stain and finish very nicely.just my 2 centsGood luck

Subject: [MedievalSawdust] feast basketThe thought of Oak plywood has crossed my mind, but I will need to hide the edges so as not to give away the true modern-ness of the chest/box.

lighter than a solid wood box, but could be sturdier than a basket. I
think there was something like that found at York, which is why I
suggest it. (Doesn't deal with the dust issue, if you have already
decided against basketry to carry your feast gear for that reason.)
Scolastica, delurking for a moment<Well there is the late period option of making it with stile and rail construction with thin plywood panels between. It would give a reduced weight over dimensional lumber, and have the edges of the plywood concealed from view.Brian Broadaxe
