A few weeks ago i bought an angle grinder. The price was right and i couldn’t resist.
But you always get what you pay for, in this case the angle grinder in it self was a bargain but i didnt get a box with it.I decided to make a toolbox for the angle grinder and for my “new”power drill who also was delivered without box.
I had some scrap pieces of construction plywood i used for the sides and for the top and bottom i used old bookshelves in pine.
It is nothing special about this project but i really like projects when i can go down to the shop and use what i already have and make the best of it, instead of going to the store and buy ”the optimal” wood for “the perfect” solution.
In this case, the result from …
1 plywood board
2 small pine boards
1 sleeping pad
and 3 hours of work
...was 2 useful boxes that hopefully will last many years!
Plywood sides (mitre joints with splines)
Top and bottom in pine (2 pine boards glued together to get the right width)
I stained the sides. I didn’t have enough stain to stain the top and bottom so i just covered the top/bottom with lacquer.
The inside was made of plywood and an old sleeping pad.
i have more pictures on my blog
Thanks for Looking
