Re: Strip: Hatch magnets
In Response To: Re: Strip: Hatch magnets *PIC* ()


Can you provide some details on how you make the recess to open the hatch? I assume you have to shape that into the wood before its glassed. Do you have to add extra wood below the recess? How easy are these hatches to open?

I really like the look of this, but am wondering how it looks if the wood is left natural. My strips are only 3/16" thick.
