Let’s face it, boxes are the most fun and useful projects we do. At least for me. I like to make small shop boxes for those tools that seem to get lost or broken if not kept in one place. Here are some I have made in the last few months when I am between projects. All are made from scrap bin wood, (of coarse). I believe that just because it’s a shop box, no reason it can’t be pretty so I take them all the way to finish and felt (pride). This also gives me a chance to practice new styles and finishes and just have some shop fun!
Pic #1 all four together
Pic #2 my newest, keeping my Kreg bits and drivers, glasses (I need those) nail sinks, vix bit, glass cutter and a molding tool. Room for more! Stained with colonial maple, grey felt. First try at half lap corners(?).
Pic #3 This one keeps my wixey digital angle gauge safe (love it) and spare battery’s. Stained with provincial. Black felt on top and black foam on the bottom.
Pic #4 This box was made for my leathercraft tools. Before this I had them in an old check book cover and wrapped with a rubber band. Stained with kona.
Pic #5 This one, well, we all need a little snack in the shop right? Stained with black cherry and no felt.
I really had fun making these and I still have many more to make. I still have a new chisel set that need a safe home and many other things. Thanks for looking!
