« Part 13: Tool Chest Redux Part 14 of Around the Shop series Part 15: Tool Chest Redux. Now that's better! »

So first a question for you guys. If you headed for your shop on a Saturday morning, knew you had the day, and one of the first thing you did was dropped your #604 to the concrete floor, would you consider it a bad day because you dropped the Bedrock, or a good day because the only permanent damage was a broken tip off the tote which was easily repaired?

Yes that’s how may day started

Many more picture on my blog

After gluing up the top piece, I fastened it with the wrap from the old door. Glued and nail it had [plenty of beef to hold the top on.

I had to dig out some #4 finish from the old finish nail bucket.

Then it was planing for the cover panels

Jack, (604) Then the #606, then the heavy smoother, then the #212.

And yes, this a sweat. That’s a lot of work

Like I said, Many more picture on my blog

If I was going out to the shop and knew I had the whole day, dropping the bedrock would be an ominous start, but not enough to take away from a day of joy and opportunity. Good thing the bedrock was not damaged. The chest is looking good. The trays are nice feature.

ohh the dropped bedrock gave me shivers. On the other hand, the tool chest looks sweet. I might follow your lead and drip a little galoot sweat on my next project.

Don I did that with one of my fore planes. The handle shattered with my heart.
The project is coming on along.

Question, I’d like to bead the cover. Where do you guys think it should be beaded?

Nice handle job. Any worry of the handle/dove tail pulling out if too much weight is in the tote?

I countersunk a screw on each side, so it screwed and glued. I guess the screw was after I took the pictures. Its not going anywhere!

A good day, every day that I draw breath and need not rely on anyone for my daily function is a good day. If breaking the tip off a plane is bad then I would take that as a bad day anytime.

I hope you got it fixed OK however.
