— Well, you can make the lock in different ways. This is a lock from a regular book bag, cut off and attached to a strap. Oh I've seen a ton of those book bags throughout my life – the kids were in school – old briefcases, old locks. Or one of mine. We've had more than one book bag around here. We've got a yellow one over there right now, under the table – even if was all battered up the lock would still be OK. And then there are those rubber bands on the top so that the fishing rods stay in place. Cause where else would you put them? Down there, on the bottom? Everything could get mixed up if you just stuck them on the bottom (...) But you know, what's the difference what elastic you use, this kind, some other kind... You can get them from a pair of pants, even. The straps are just straps, the belt's just a belt (...) You're dressed in quilted pants, so you've got something keeping you warm there already; you're sitting basically on wood. And that's so that water or snow or early rains don't get on the case (...) Well, moving along, this board is, well, just your standard chessboard. You just need it to be able to make a good case out of it. And see here — there are brackets everywhere. It turned out pretty light. See, there are brackets at the bottom and on the sides — everything fixed with screws. It (the chessboard. – editor) was already ready, as far as size goes, height and width. I didn't need to do anything else with it except piece together a good case out of it. Yep!
