Inspiring vid, love the music . Who is that, Ry Cooder? As soon as I can get finished with some of the necessary projects I have going ,I am going to make a chest for my self. Thanks for the extra help.

Thanks! The music is “Matt’s Blues” by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com).

I know the feeling of having to get other projects done. Only reason I’ve been able to put videos out of this recently, is because I hadn’t gotten the video edited yet. This is, unfortunately, the last of the video I have of this project until I get more progress made. I’ve had a couple other projects creep in front of this one on the priority list, so I haven’t been able to do anything with it in a month… Hopefully soon, as one of the other projects is almost done.

Nice Mos, it’s looking great. The only thing that could make that video better is if that was you playing the guitar.

Thanks Andy. I don’t play guitar, but I have thought about recording some sax in the future for the background music. I got a nice microphone a few months back, that actually sounds pretty good, so who knows…

Chris, what’s up with the extra “beef” on the inside top edge?

Edit: I did this to help support the open lid

Nice box, Mos. I’m leaning toward building one myself, just to protect the tools.

Did you design your bench yourself? That design looks like the one I found in an ebook. I like the simple lines, but appears to be a great work holder.

Frickin’ fantastic!

Excellent video Mos; go-pro shot and the floor vantage point were nice additions.

It is always fun, educational and inspiring to see you work. Thank you bud.

The extra strip on the inside has since been removed, actually. It was originally put there when the screws I had were 1-1/4” (that came with the hinge). I got a bunch of 5/8” pyramid head screws that I’m using instead, though, so I removed the strip on the inside since.

I left the top long, so that rests against the back of the tool chest once it’s open.

Thanks! I didn’t design it per-say. I adapted a version of the “French Bench” that was built on two episodes of The Woodwrights Shop. I’ve got a blog series on that build as well: http://lumberjocks.com/Mosquito/blog/series/5705

Thanks Tony! Go-Pro was our Tech-Gift at work this Christmas, and it’s been fun to play around with. Nice to be able to have multiple angles in a single recording

Wonderful vid Mos and nicely edited too. Chest is looking great. I always learn something when I watch you work.

Nice video Chris. Your videos have gave me a kick in the rear and this is where i am right now.

Screws will be installed tomorrow to make sure shelves stay in place. Front top and bottom are cut to size and just need to plane the angle, and install as well.

Im 5” taller and 3” wider than original large chest size, added one more shelf. Had to make it big enough for my D8 saws to fit inside the lid and extra shelf i have some plans for.

Thanks guys! Looking good Justin. I haven’t yet decided what I’m going to do for the lower section yet. I had thought about making it larger, but didn’t want to make it too large, especially in my small shop for now…
