Felting drawers

Based on what I read Hide glue was used as to not to rust drawer bottoms.As you can see the bottoms are metal . Gluing was a bit more difficult than anticipated .Too much it soaks through the felt .Too little, the strips fall off.

Step 2-Tool Box

After two bleaches with Oxalic acid and many washes with cold water,I let it dry .I then put a quick coat of 50/50 amber shellac.Let it dry and then rubbed on some red oak stain. Its drying as these pictures were taken. All the drawers have to be re felted with green felt and hide glue. A final few coats of Water-Lox and will put up the final pictures.
