Building a Ship in a Bottle.
A bottle of Jefferson's Ocean bourbon would be perfect, and fits the theme. I wouldn't even take the lettering off the bottle. (It's painted on, not a paper label.)
I don't remember exactly. I just stopped at Lowe's or Home Depot on my way home from work and bought a couple of packages of cloth and a gallon of the resin (with separate hardener in a smaller container). I may have had to pick up some more cloth along the way, because I did multiple layers inside & out. My memory was that I tried to use pieces that were as big as possible, too, so when I did the lids I tried to cut one big piece for the top and for the inside; for the bottoms I tried to do the two largest sides and the bottom together -- which doesn't make the most efficient use of the raw cloth, but I was more interested in making strong bags.
I imagine that you could, and that the fiberglass would be enough. I used quarter or eighth inch plywood for part of it because I didn't trust the fiberglass alone, but there are fiberglass car panels and motorcycle bags that are made with a mold and have only fiberglass (no internal skeleton).

How to Sharpen a Chainsaw Chain
The latches are stainless steel, I remember that; but I don't remember the web site I got them from. I just searched marine hardware until I found something I liked. They're made to be able to lock a deck hatch, if I recall correctly. I found that the hole they have for a small padlock wasn't large enough for the trailer hitch lock I wanted to use on one (locking bag: good) so I just drilled it out a little larger.
Ah! Here ya go ... this might not be it exactly, but these are pretty darn close to what I used. https://www.amazon.com/MxEol-Lockable-Anti-Rattle-Marine-Stainless/dp/B01LRNANAK/ref=asc_df_B01LRNANAK/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=241991498318&hvpos=1o3&hvnetw=g&hvrand=14663041364072202139&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9060031&hvtargid=pla-459369588932&psc=1

Thanks! I had a great guide! I loved your copper pipe exhaust tube; that was the thing that got my attention & made me want to build one. I think I'm going to round off the edges of my handles a bit, and maybe decorate it a little more. My basic shape was the outline of a Martin backpacker guitar, widened to the width of the board I was using.
I would imagine that if it did draw in an ember, that ember is going to get blown right back out.
Pretty straightforward to make. I bought a $10 leather jacket at the thrift store for my leather, and the wood was a leaf from an old table that my ex left behind when she moved out. I've been wanting to do something with that board for ten years. Now I won't have to get down on all fours and stick my face near the woodstove door to blow on the fire.

Because these bees bore holes in the beams that hold up my deck, and the rafters supporting my porch roof. I value the structural integrity of my home.
"Carpenter bees don't like finished or pressure treated wood." You haven't seen them boring into my pressure-treated deck joists or my porch rafters, then! :-) I think they'll chew into just about anything.

Clever! Sink comes with the fitting for the air hole already, etc. My only thought is that I'd probably go with a steel sink instead of ceramic, but ya gotta use what ya got.
Cool - you have me thinking about how I might make a firebox for a smoker out of a couple of old sinks I have around.

I considered molds but because I was only planning a one-off set, and I'd seen a friend doing a cedar canoe overlayed with fiberglass, this seemed like the way to go. If I were trying to do this in large quantities, molds would definitely be the way to go. But this is a pretty straightforward, viable method for anyone who has some extra time on their hands and wants a set of custom hard bags without paying a fortune.
