I have a 1980’s plastic tool tote that I thought would look better in wood, so I created this one with sapele and hard maple. I gave the ends a little art deco style and the tenons some sloping sides to match. All four tool rests are screwed in from the bottom so you can replace them if you need to re-drill some holes for different tools.

Very nice job and looks so useful. I am glad you posted a pic with the tools in it. No reason a tool tote can’t be useful and look good too! shows pride.
