Wine box, plane cabinet 2.
A wine box from the local wineshop comes back to life!

Another old wine box, into a new life, I have a weakness for recycle.
Another bunch of old planes into new use, even powertools are invented.
Another day in the workshop, hmmmm nothing like the smell of wood.
Yes, I made a wine box cabinet before, this was now for the ‘special’ planes.

A few more will follow, as my workshop will slowly move into these.
You can read more of the project in my projects Tool cabinet 'old wine in old boxes'.... and Wine box, plane cabinet 3 , Wine box, plane cabinet 4.' .

This one took some more ‘inovative’ solutions, since there were different types.
And at the end a little box for the small parts. that fit’s in under the two fifties

[For the nerds: 2 x Record 50, Record 44, Record 43, Stanley and record 71, 2 x Stanley 66, Stanley 79]

Hope it can be to some inspiration,

Cool use of that box. Too bad beer doesn’t come in boxes like that.

Excellent second life for your box…but you did not leave any room for the wine…

Mafe, you have outdone yourself! That is a really cool use of the wine box. They all fit in there so well and storing them in wood keeps them from rusting!!

ps. I hope you got to drink all the wine that came in the box,too!!!!!1

Yes to drink the wine are the first pleasure, but my passion for tools are bigger, and in my house the wine don’t get old, like the tools.
Thank you for the comments, one day I have to stop drinking wine, ands start to use some of those wonderful tools… ;-)

Fantastic utilization of space Mads. You’ve really crammed a lot of tools into that limited space. I would expect nothing less from a top flight architect, which I imagine you are. Are you going to put a French cleat on it so you can hang it up and take it down easily?

Never mind the box, it is the tools inside it that make my heart beat a little faster! Mafe, it would seem you are building a NICE collection of DECENT handtools! Careful now, I feel some pangs of jealousy here…
