Similar ratios as the tote described in Walker and Tolpins book. Based on my hand span though, not Tolpin’s (obviously). No measurements taken, just harmonic ratios ha. Walnut and oak and brass slotted screws.

Main part holds panel saw and backsaws, chisel roll, and any planes you may want. Till holds marking and measuring tools and other small odds and ends.

I sometimes use that same precise measuring system! Belt sander for the precision matching!

Nice tote. I built one last year but it is all dinged gouged and scratched up. You will obviously take better care of yours…....I hope!
I see it holds MOSTLY wood working tools then I spied the pipe cutter.
Thanks for posting.

Ha its just still relatively new. In a year I’m sure it’ll be well dinged up too.

Nice looking tote…better than plastic any day. As for the dings and scratches, they’re just proof you are actually working on something.
