I wanted to set the depth of a bit in my router table, but I needed more light. I know I have a box with some small task lights somewhere. In my search I came across this old milk bottle crate that’s been in a box for a long time. I had been asked to make a tool caddy for kitchen utensils, and it was way back on my list of to do’s. Or so I thought.
The bottom is sandwiched between the inside base and the runners below. I didn’t want this to scratch a counter or table top. The sides, ends and center divider were pre drilled and nailed together. Everything was assembled inside the basket. The 2 smaller dividers are a tight fit, but not attached so that they can be removed if necessary.
I scrubbed the basket with dish soap but left most of the patina. I used nails with rusty heads, and just enough satin spray lacquer to seal it without making it shiny.
I have a few tools for it. I make them and throw them in a box for when I need them.
I never did find that light. That’s cool, now I can’t remember why I needed it.
