MusicFilter Skull Toolbox

Trilogy 2 of 3
August 1, 2009

I have been inspired to make a new box using a skull stencil sized differently to finish it. I am paying closer attention to the details in construction on this than I did on the first toolbox project. I am in the sanding stage right now. The lid has been cut (first cut…yeah), and I am about to go try to find some hinges of some sort to attach it. I love doing these projects. Piddle fartin’ around in the shed, the music, the smokes, the ideas get in my head and then I can’t stop.

The aftershock of making a box:

I am at the finish stage of box2. I know I want to use different size and style skull templates for the theme but I can’t decide if I want to keep the deep luster thick gloss base finsih or go for a more flat simple transparent finish similar to these photos. What do you think honey?

It’s BMF’s BIRTHDAY! 

8:59 pm – I’ve been fucking around with the box, went to the store for some snacks, spilled a drink in the shed, put the music on sirius. Time for some more box time after I kiss my honey. (fucking calltaker…douche…your time is done)

The Skull Toolbox project continues. I will not hammer into it like before cause I do want to cause anymore loneliness, but I will finish it because I began it…plus it will be cool when it does get done. I have painted it with a sponge brush tonight to get the paint into the nooks and crannies. I will finish it with a nice bristle brush later on. I am thinking I will put only poly or maybe even a light stain on the inside and detail it later like the first box inside. Or I may make the inside black and add some airbrushed type of skulls throughout. Not sure yet.

I still have to get some hardware: hinges/ hooks/ chain or catch of sometype. I would like to find some cool garage sale type stuff. Maybe a little hardware store with old stock.

I will do a 600 grit sanding over the paint once it dries good and put the last coat of paint on then. After that will the time I will put the various skulls on it. Once I get what I want in details I want on the outside/inside I will poly the fuck out of it for a nice thick finish.

I am going to look for more stencils tonight but I am thinking I will just use one main stencil used many ways. So this is my goal tonight, on my bd, drinking my drink, sitting with my honey bunny, listening/watching the poor fuckers inside that house in CA, is to play with an formulate some skulls for the finish.

Skull box v2.1 is all done except for a skull handle I ordered last week and have not recieved yet. Pretty cool i must say. Most of all I enjoyed every second of ‘work’ on the box. MC said it best when she said that these boxes have become my ‘meditation’.

I finished the box today. I like it. I will be beginning a new one today that reminds me of a mini coffin. Not sure of the plan yet but will develop it as I work on it, drink bourbon and listen to music.
