New box needed
« on: October 13, 2018, 10:21:47 PM »
Built myself a wood tool box for my tool set back in the late 70s. Got really ragged out and last year I decided to build a new one for the same tool set.

The original from the 70s to 2017.
VWs to D10s, I've fixed em.

For the new box, I used Walnut and brass hardware. The drawer box is Birdseye Maple with a Walnut front. This new box should last me the rest of my life.

Here is a brand new picture to show the scale a little better. :-)

Very nice!  You need a tool box so you don't lose those tools!  I like the metalwork on the tray in the original box.  The new box is beautiful.

Al, that tray is the reason I didn't pitch the old box after making the new one. ;-)
