As with all my projects at the moment, I'm making stuff that I need and posting it to YouTube. It's good motivation to finish the projects fully.
I have several items in my home office that have large footprints- for example I have a lightbox that is one about 20mm thick but is 400mm x 600mm. I had a gap under my desk, so I decided to make a storage box on wheels for longer-term storage.
Now I do like to paint-and-decal stuff and I had an idea for this box in mind, and I purchased yellow spray paint as a highlight colour, but I changed my mind last minute and decided to make it have a passing resemblance to the Plutonium storage case in Back to the Future. It always made me laugh, the flippancy of 'Plutonium Handle with Care'.
Notes on the project-
- I made the mistake of skipping a second coat of the undercoat and this showed up really badly on the yellow. I made a notation in the video about one million coats later and that number isn't far off. I don't think the 'Painter's Touch' spray paint was too good either, but it's readily available locally. I think I need to have a look for alternative spray paints for future projects.
- The Aluminium tape is real duct tape which I dulled down with some steel wool. It's not going to last particularly well with heavy use, but I don't foresee any heavy use with that box. I haven't gone near it since I filled it up.
