Mystery of Magellan Daisy and Caithness Whalers - progress on my portable museum of curiosity

Layers of enamel paint age the once shiny metal box.
Side panels are now printed on canvas and in place with black canvas edging.
Drawer labels also printed onto canvas.
still lots to do. I'm thinking about thick hemp rope to coil up and fill the gap above the drawers.


There's still lots to do - but it's starting to look like I imagined it.


  1. I love the concept of a portable museum. You take such care to make each one more than just a box of "stuff." If I ever make it to the Highlands these museums will be one of the first things I look for.

  2. i like these museums in a box and am glad to see this one. for some reason i love the word ambergris.
