I've bought myself a small wooden toolbox, it's in really good condition, but I wanted to freshen it up a bit, so it's now in bits with me trying to decide on what's the best approach. The box has a few drawers (which can be removed all the way) and the top swivels open like your standard metal tool box. The whole lot is varnished on the outside (main box, top lid and drawer fronts) and I'm contemplating whether I want to sand it down and re-varnish, or simply keep the finish as is and just wash it. Sanding + re-varnish would be easy I reckon although I'm not 100% sure how deep the existing varnish soaked into the wood, it might turn out I need to sand the hell out of it. On the other hand washing it is not going to be easy with it being wood, so a wipe-down is probably as far as it's going to go. Any advice perhaps from someone who's done something similar? Cheers, T.
I thought I would start my own thread as I have a few bits I have been asked to do . Also those that are not interested can ignore it . The first handle here is for a Vesuvius, made out of Blackwood . It is very hard but machines well and the picture is of it sanded to 600 grit with no finish . A bit of research is needed into what finish will be used as the wood is dense and has natural oils . On the internet it is suggested to sand up to 2000 grit and polish ..
I ordered some custom East Indian Rosewood parts for my Vesuvius from Home Barista member cannonfodder (thread). I ordered 3 PF handles (2 x stock and 1 for my Cafelat), 3 toggles (water, steam & group lever) and a dosing funnel for VST. I added myself to his waiting list about 7 months ago, once my name came up we discussed the details of what I wanted to order. Dave knew threads and dimensions for my kit so that took the stress out of that. Once the details were finalised the parts took a couple of weeks to finish. After that, photos were sent to me of the finished parts and I sent the payment. They were shipped right away and arrived in the UK a few days later. I'm really chuffed with the final result!
