Wood Working for Wargamers: Troop Transport Case, post 12
Each handle is attached with some wood glue and then two drywall screws through the wall. The bevel makes it much easier on the hands when carrying.
I did some more sanding on the drawer runners and each drawer slides in and out very smoothly.
There are a number of options to use to lock the drawers in place during transport. That's an important feature as without a locking mechanism, if the case tilts forward during transport the two drawers could fall out. That's not-so-good.
The easiest way is add a strap along the outside to hold them in place but that looks really bad. I think I'll use a rod system that's held un place when the top is closed.
All thats left is to build the top, a lot of sanding and then a quick finish.
