Tips and Jigs for the Shop #6: Tool Totes – Purpose, Philosophy, Design, Construction, and Usage

12-06-2009 11:10 PM by Jim Bertelson | 35 comments »

Note: I was asked to describe my tool tote after it was noted in my push drill blog. So here is my command performance (-: ....probably more than you asked for. My tool tote was born out of frustration and need. I had a plastic one that started falling apart, and was totally inadequate in any case. So I built mine, lets call him Tommy, and his sidekick Betty Bit Box. This is a utilitarian as it gets. Built about 22 years ago, it has traveled all over the state in the bowels of my motor ho...

How to make a wine bottle holder that can balance.
