Wine box, Lathe tools cabinet.
And some carving chisels!

I spend the money on a set of HSS lathe tools, so now was the time for my lathe tool cabinet.
And wauuu, were they worth every penny, they work like a knife in butter.
Same concept as the plane cabinets, but with a removable caddy with the most important tools to bring to the lathe. Also a caddy for my carving chisels, so they can be brought where needed (never used yet…).
This you can see on picture 4.

On picture 5 you can see a funny detail… What do you do when the cabinet are to small!
When the iron has been sharpened some times, I can fix the hole…

I think the winebox concept are begining to come together quite well now.
You can read more of the project in my projects Tool cabinet 'old wine in old boxes'....
And: Wine box, plane cabinet 2.'.

Hope it can be to some inspiration,

I love the re-use of existing things, but you have also created a beautiful artifact, bravo!

Nice work Mafe. When I buy a case of wine it comes in a cardboard box. There is no way I can store my tools in those.

I was wondering, how do you have time to make all these projects when you are drinking all of that wine? LOL.

Cool little cabinet.

Great idea, right now I have a pile of lathe tools and it takes me 5 minutes sometimes to find the lathe tool I’m looking for. I do have a place for them but it isn’t practical like this is. It is more like that hole thing you have in that one pic. so you’re picking them up seeing what’s on the end then look for the next one. Of course I can tell some by the handle. This looks much more practical.

Looks good, excellent re-use of a wine box. We use them for different things also.

Hi again,
Yes I love order, in my old job they called me mr. order sometimes…
Infact what I love is that I can find things when I want to use them, to work with my hands and not the head.
Dennis; been there did that, nothing would do the job! Do you really think the Kirch are there by accidet.. The colors do not match! I laugh.
Now I just hope, that I can stay sharp…
Best thoughts,
Mads
