I made these as a project for a wolf den of cub scouts a year or so ago. What fun that was! Great project. I am sure your gsons will love them!!!

I have a grandson that would just love something like that I will copy your project if you don’t mind. I also think that you can never have to many Grandchildren they are something real special.

Grandpa’s have to start them out right.
The hand saw took me back to when I was a little kid and the noise it made when going back and forth on the kitchen table.
Great project

Very nice looking tool totes. Depending on their ages, the next step is to get them some real tools in there to begin woodworking!!
Thanks for sharing!
