Using velvet to cover the wood and protect the outside. Have straps with hardware ties with bells for fun. Will be kept in the ouch to the right. Will be great to have period tools on hand to use for similar purposes.
Making new related items for EC Bees which I part of on Facebook. A costuming group that focuses peer 17Th century Europe, though not as limited as sca. So the new theme is for those in the group to identify members.
