I was tired of moving tools one handful at a time and risking dropping them so i built a tool tote. The entire body is mahogany with a ply board bottom. The box joints are reinforced with square pegs which are about 2” long and the remaining joints are mainly mortise and tenon with a few lap joints. This is my 1st attempt at box joints and square pegs. It was based on a Greene and Greene inspired tool tote built by Jack Barnhill. Dimensions: 18” long, 11.5” wide and 6” deep and weights 9.5lbs empty. Finished with Cabot Gloss Spar Varnish.

-- Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off than it is to cut MORON.
