I got a chest that I am planning on turning into a hand plane chest. It already has a place for the handsaws on the lid. Inside the chest was an old tool tote or parts tote. It was in rough condition, but I decided to try and save it anyway. Let me know what you think. Hit that subscribe button.

Flood recovery project #2: A good start, I think

09-11-2017 02:50 PM by FreddieMac | 1 comment »

Well, I am not sure I am doing it correct, but I am doing it.
