A Few New Boxes For Tools
In addition to the trays in my other post I was making a few boxes for some of my shop tools. I've found that making these boxes keeps my tools in better condition and also keeps all of the specialized pieces together so nothing gets lost. I still have quite a bit of scrap Baltic Birch in various thickness left over from a large project, so I'm working hard at using it all up. What better way to protect my tools without spending much money. At lesat the wood was free. The hinges, latches, handles, and corner protectors did need to be purchased though.
OK, I've provided photo numbers in case they post in the wrong sequence.
Box #1 (DSCF0538 & DSCF0539 - First and Second photos) was made to keep my frequently used scroll saw blades, tools, etc together.
Box #2 (DSCF0540 & DSCF0541 - Third and Forth photos) was made to keep the rest of my scroll saw blades together.
Both box #1 and 2 will likely travel with me when I do demonstrations and scroll saw training, but will help keep the scroll saw stuff together in the shop too.
Box #1 & #2 are shown together in the fifth photo (DSCF0542)
Box #3 i (DSCF0543) Is the fifth photo and the box with the black handle. It is only about 1/2 complete, because I will be installing supports and dividers for the tool pieces that will be contained within. Once this is complete I will do the staining and finishing. The tool is "The Original Mini Fence", that was purchased from Router Forums member CapnClive (Scotty) back in July of last year. Thanks again Scotty. I've played with the Mini Fence a few times, but I still haven't managed to put it to good use yet. At least this box will keep the Mini Fence and it's parts from getting separated.
Who said you can't cut box joints in plywood? I'm not having any problems.
