    line them before assembly off the cuff comment without thinking but then for once I could be on the money.
    Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.

    Have you considered flocking, something I use for my boxes. Works well

    Thanks Barri,
    I had not considered using flocking as I thought it would produce a thin coating. This is without ever, knowingly, seeing the finished product.
    I will have to try it.

    My dads an upholsterer and has always done it by wrapping very thin cardboard in felt and then sticking that to the sides and base of the box. He says itís pretty much the only way to get really tight corners and make it look neat. Apparently itís the traditional way. Thereís a bit of an art to it as you need to thin the felt near the edges to eliminate any bulk. Iíve done it a few times with great success.
