The plastic tool box that came with my socket set broke at the hinge. I couldn’t find what I wanted at any store so I made this out of scrap wood in my garage. I thought you might appreciate it.

Thanks. My wife thought I was being a little too cheap using the “knobs” I had in stock!

Great tools box.
I like the idea of making the door at the box side, saving your back for digging the tools’ tray from the top.

Take care and work safe.

Very nice solution to the problem and a great use for scrap. I too like the drawers.

My plastic box is broken also. Wish the scrap pile wasn’t so low. Great job.

Have your say...
