I have an unheated shop in the Midwest glue freezes and gets ruined. I needed a quick and dirty carry all. found wood laying around the shop and threw this together I know we are supposed to post things that are works of art but this taught me about finger joints with construction grade plywood (not the best) and the need for routing with stop blocks.

... I like it. I’ve been thinking of building one of these for the very brief winters here in Atlanta. But for some reason I can’t seem to part with my cardboard box. It’s funny how we get attached to stuff! Good job … and it is a work of art!

Quick, dirty and perfect. That is something I need to build just so it’s all in one place. Nice build!

I’m pretty sure that no rule exists concerning posting only projects that are artful and tasteful, else they would have rejected mine a long time ago.

As hti put it, this type of post often gets as much attention, or more, than other items posted.

Looks nice, and on my list of setups as well. Keep posting!

Yup, cool beans. Especially like the variable partitions.
