Default Tool Box

Thought I would have go at making a Tool Box type thing.

Started with a sheet of Birch faced ply, cut to size with Makita Track saw.

Used a Trend dovetail jig for the joints.

Fixed the lid using Dominos.

Track saw again to cut the lid off.

Trim is a bit of Sapele which was lying around.

Now need Lock, handles and a couple of trays to fit inside.

Good work though.

Very nice...now you have to get more tools to fill it...

Here's how you do it:
1. measure the inside area
2. shop for tools by obtaining their dimensions
3. arrange the tools to buy by the combination that comes closest to the area of the "tool box kinda thing"
4. buy said combination of tools
5. place tools on spare shelf for subsequent use (assemble as required so as to be better prepared)
6. stain and seal box according to specifications requested by recipient of box (granddaughter, etc...)
7. give finished box to said recipient
8. ...repeat...

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.
