« Part 5: Sanding, and the final touches Part 6 of Pine tool box, Stanley Style series no next part

Just an update. Found some brass plated handles to put on the ends of this 50 pound+ tool box. Used a Vix Bit to start the screws…

Might make carrying ( lugging??) this thing around easier? One on each end. Picked up a few brass hooks to hang a few items with..

Couple of screwdrivers, and

bevel gauge and a pair of pliers. Bottom area is filling up..

There is a 16oz hammer, a square, a couple chisels, a small “wonder bar” by Stanley. A 12” tool box saw’s handle can be seen

There are auger bits for the soon to be added Stanley 645 brace. There is a Stanley #1220 eggbeater drill in there now. A 3/8” gimlet bit is in there, somewhere, as is a 3/8” wide cold chisel.

Stanley #220 block plane and a #3 bench plane. There is a small oil stone back there, somewhere

Ah, there it is. A small pipe wrench, and a push drill. So far, I can still close the box up..

And, I think I found a use for a table I had cobbled together, as well

Maybe a “workbench”?
