Assembly And Finishing

1 Cut the piano hinge to the correct length with a hacksaw and fit it to the chest and lid with brass screws. It helps if the screws are waxed before inserting them, as the heads are easily damaged if too much pressure is applied. Also fit a brass lid stay and a small brass ball catch.

2 Apply several coats of clear matt polyurethane varnish and then rub in wax polish with fine-grade wire wool.
