    Yes sir, I do.
    At least 24 dry time after last coat, then a bit of sanding with 0000 steel wool to even things out, I hand rub them with Howards Restorer A Shine, and Howards bee's Wax N Orange oil.

    Check out Lee Valley for hinges. They have some amazing hardware that will allow closing, and recessing, in some cases.
    Could also consider a drop down door/shelf idea. They have hinges for those as well.
    Nice unit.

    Finally getting a bowl for my daughter's bows and ribbons closer to done. All that's left is carnuba wax and finish the foot where my Chuck was. Did things in an odd order but gotta learn some how.
    Have a great week fellas. Back to razors this week! Whoo!

    Here's a beautiful Remeso I spent a few hours cleaning up today. A wonderful gift of many from the kind soul Butzy. The point had a decent size chip that I ground out creating the new point you see now. It was quite rusty and could barely make out the etching down the spine. I was awfully nervous cleaning this one up as I did not want to take off that beautiful gold wash.

    Some new scales are in the near future for this beauty. It's already been re-scaled and did not fit properly, as I am assuming unfortunately this is where the chipped point came from. They also had double washered the inside of the pivot pin on one side.

    Thanks again Butzy and I hope you like what I have done with it so far. It's too nice of a razor to see it go to waste.

    I was hoping to get ALL of the suffice scratches out on the front. But it's sketchy with not losing the etching colour. The rear is not too bad. But I'm sure I'll work on it more when she's un pinned and free.

    P.s. does anybody know how they would do this etching on the spine? I have seen ways of how you lay a sticker with the cut-outs gone of what you want etched in, and than using a salt water cloth with current to do the etching. But this seems like awfully miniscule detailing to be able to do it that way. Just curious for future reference of at home work.

    Here's another one I worked on today. A J.Busch. Not overly happy with the outcome yet tho. Still a fair amount of surface scratches from the sanding. Work some more on it when I de-pin it and dye the scales up. Before and after.

    Thanks for the kind words Mike and Jerry. I am happy with the way it has went, not sure if babies like bowls but hopefully
