Here’s the start of my inner plywood skeleton for my box. Once this is done, it will be encased with copper sheets, have a strap attached and be used to carry around comics when I go to ComiCons in Steampunk.
That’s done. Waiting for glue to set and then I drive my little tiny nails in.
This is one of my (very well scrubbed and cleaned) copper sheets taking a vinegar, mustard, and salt bath.
