    One of the carpenters at work had a few minutes to spare and whipped up this little oak box for me today.

    A little touch up sanding after a test fit and the poly was on it.

    Hinges and a clasp are next...maybe some red velvet? Got to go through Sister Mary Margaret's closet to see if I like any of the fabrics, she wouldn't miss a dress or two?

    Why cut up a dress to line a box? Go to Cloth World or something and get some fabric you like. Then you'll know you have enough, won't have to worry about existing stitch holes or seams, and won't be destroying an article of clothing.
