File Handling and Forming Lists

I’m trying to form a list of “file handles” into the same format as if I were using the new file command. However, I do not want to use the new file command because it presents the user with a Save As dialog box.
I’m trying to achieve the following format for my list…boo, hiss:
{file “HD:temp:test.gif”, file “HD:temp:result.gif”}
But, when I create a new file handle using the command fileRef returns a number {536}:

set fileRef to (open for access file theLogFileName
with write permission)
set eof fileRef to 0

Any ideas on how to hard code a list in the following format without using the command new file:
{file “HD:temp:test.gif”, file “HD:temp:result.gif”}
