Hi all, Just made myself a nice toolbox using the Lee Valley toolbox ends.
Interesteing product. You can read my review here:
Hope it helps!
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
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.
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
