Bitbox of wood
Yes you are allowed to call me fanatic…
I bought a old toolbox full of tools on E-bay UK, and in the box was this wonderful old ‘multitool’.
Ofcourse I have plenty of advanced screwdrivers, but no one with a charm like this.
But what can you do, when the world are running in ‘posidrive’, become negative or stay positive…
I choose to file a bitholder into shape, so it fit in the handle jaws, just wonderful!
But!!! A plastic bitbox, and this wonderful tool!!! No way!!!
So I made a little wooden bitbox.
First I routed a dovetailed 3mm deep spur in the wood, then routed the room in a smaller size.
The sliding lid I made on the tablesaw, by setting the angel to the dovetail, and all was then rounded and sanded on my discsander, with no furter finish too keep the old look.
Finish with anique wax, and some dirt from the floor, ‘patine’.
At the last picture you can see all the tools in the old tool:
Screwdriver, drill, chisel, carver, awl and more.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, and that you are not tired of all my postings…
