Still playing around with trying to improve my joints. This has incorporated a number of different joins. Dovetails, through tenons, and tongue and groove (for want of a better word). While I am far from satisfied with the standard of work manship, I am satisfied with the design aspects, and the improvement in my chisel skill. I will take it and show Roy at the Brisbane School of Woodworking this weekend. Wait and see what he thinks.

BTW the timber is just scrap pine from an old desk. My wife had the desk as a child, but when it got handed onto her younger sister she painted it totally black. Even the insides of the drawers. If you look closely there are stains in the timber (the handle particularly) that were never going to come out.

This project went to my nephew as a present. After getting it, he got well and truly into the swing of things. The overalls belong to my son, and the helmet is an old one from work. I have to make a kiddies sized mallet sometime.

Another fun project and it certainly improved my skills some.

Really nice tool tote.
Frankly, I think your first tote is much easier to locate & draw out “burried tools” since the carrying is not an obstruction.

Doesn’t look like the little boy is worried about the looks.

The big deal about woodworking is enjoying what you are doing.

Have your say...
