Hi All. As I mentioned earlier, I am building this chest and filling it full of tools, then raffling it off at this years Canadian Home Workshop Show in Toronto. I will be donating 100% of the money raised to Habitat for Humanity.

I have a full blog set up with pictures, etc HERE . Pleast take a look, and leave me your comments or suggestions.

It really is a great cause, and I’m really looking forward to handing over the cheque :)

Pics are up, including the tools…....LATE night last night, and EARLY morning this AM, but I managed to get it finished on time (barely….the courier came into my shop literally as I was putting the last plane rack into the chest!)

Pics are HERE

Lots of good stuff in there, and more that you can’t see. If you are coming to the show in Toronto, please stop by either my area or the Habitat booth and pick up a 5.00 ticket. It’s for a good cause, (and $2,500.00+ worth of tools for 5 bucks is a pretty good returrn on investment as well :D)

Thanks all,

Ryan
