Given the ends are metal, and the side depths low, would you say that a 3/4 bottom and sides of 1/4 finnply would do the job for less tare weight? Nuts and bolts vs screws of course.

Taking it a bit further-lets substitute thin sheet metal for the sides and bottom, thus allowing more room for the contents----none of which will have to do with WOODWORKING---hence the rec.woodworking newsgroup name. I come here to learn new things-and alot of the time leave with a smile---this being one of those occassions. hmmmm, perhaps it is a grimace.......<g>

Did the subject line somehow mislead you, tricking you into reading the post?
I suggest ignoring any posts on machine repair or wiring, hand plane fettling, sharpening, dust collection ductwork, etc... You'll be disappointed by the lack of wood in the actual message.

Barry,
What's with the change in your screen name? There's *gotta* be a story behind that!

Hell, it took me a month to realize Bonehenge was you! I didn't know you had gone Goth.
Not sure about this new one. Just keep putting BARRY in there somewhere and we can keep up!

Somehow this approach to a time-honored tool tote seems less appropriate on a woodworking forum than one might expect.
Small projects like tool totes provide an excellant opportunity to practice skills and recycle short scraps of materials.
In mind are box joints, loose panels, doweling, biscuit joinery, and on and on.

And possibly to learn a lesson in proportion and design .....I built a fairly decent pine/shellacked tool tote but left out the portable part.....way too big to pack around inside the house on misc. repairs.....it does make a very stylish holder for various sandpaper<g>. Rod
