Great work Stringer! You've inspired me to break out the tools and start a new weekend project.

Killer job, sixstringer! Love the orange. Now all you need to do is cut a hole in the top and inlay a piece of glass...

WOW nice work on the flat files!!!! They look awesome.

I am sure if I do some searching I can find the answer to my question in many places, but what do you keep your prints secured in while inside the file?

Thanks in advance.

I use these. You can get them from Hobby Lobby with a 50% off coupon on a regular basis. They are heavy duty.
