So in the last post we left with a almost finished tote.
That fits nicely in the front of the chest.
And sits nicely on top when in use.
The next thing I did was cut the saw till down so it will sit in the bottom, under the sliding shelves.
So now what’s left is to figure out what tools go in it. If you look into the tote, one of the small existing shelves fit perfect for a divider.
I also had a question on the bottom of the chest. I’m not sure what or how this came about, but it has a raised panel bottom, almost like the current bottom, was a top at one time.
And I found this inside.
but haven’t decided what to do with it. If it was complete, I’d reattach it.
The extension was made from poplar.
The cover and the top is red oak.
I believe the original is pine.
I was actually thinking of painting the outside, but I came to my senses. I know it doesn’t match, but it’s close enough for me.
