This is my first post after enjoying the site.I’m pretty much self taught and the information I’ve gain from from others sharing has answered many questions.I made the bottom to my Dutch tool chest when the top got full and I added casters to make it more mobile. I added a photo of my saws that cleaned up.This restoring old tools to use again is very addicting.

Nice addition JhWill. I’m thinking of making a mobile bas for mine. Right now I use a folding hand cart to move it around. Yu may want take a look here at the Toolchest thread and maybe post a pic or two.

Jhwill, welcome!

Your chest and base look fantastic! I’ve been awake half the night thinking of a base for my recently completed chest. This looks quite sturdy.

BTW, you have excellent taste in saws!
