The significance of this project is that I built it from old Pine that I found on the rubbish pile. I think it was an old trundle draw and divider of a kids single bed.

I needed a Tool Caddy to fit snug inside the cupboard underneath my bench. The center handle outside curves I used a bucket to trace the rounds then a jigsaw, spoke shave and sandpaper. For the actual handle I used a 35mm forstner bit and jigaswed the straights out to make the hole, tidied up with spoke shave and chisel.

Some rustins wood filler, Coated with decking oil for durability and it fits perfectly below my bench along side a few power tools.

Should serve me for years.
