Here’s my entry into the 2×4 Challenge. It’s a storage tool box to hold my good rifflers and rasps and to keep them from clanging.

Neet project and fun figuring out how to use that darn 8 foot stick. Forced me to tune-up my band saw, got me familiar with my Incra 3000SE mitre guage and dug out my good block plane that I rarely use. An excellent challenge.

Measurements are: 16.75×5.5×7.25, fastened with #4 Brass – flat head philips, and glue

An absolute pleasure to participate with everybody. It’s why I like being a LumberJock.

Ahhhhh, I was wondering what you had scheming. Really neat use of the wood!

I’m still being amazed by all of you guys (and gals) uses for a regular old 2×4. Great implementation.
