2021-10-24 (Su) EWC_Panel Hardboard inserts

When I'm carrying this project around, the lunch boxes and other tin containers should look pretty cool, but they should also look nice when I open them. I bought some 1/4" (6mm) thick hardboard and polyurethane with black stain for the interior. I measured rough outlines and cut pieces to size. I had to sand both considerably, but they fit.

I should have worn gloves when I applied the stain because I still have black marks on my finger after three days. I used a cheap foam brush to apply the coating, which left bubbles. I tried popping them with a lighter, but it wasn't very effective. On a whim, I lit the stain on fire and helped it burn off the whole surface, but the resulting texture was not great, so I added a second layer and left it all to dry.
