So I have to credit the inspiration for this one to LJ member SirFatty (Dave) because it was a great idea. Mine’s a little bulkier, but I used what I had on hand. I also wanted to experiment with using neodymium magnets instead of latches. I was a little worried they wouldn’t hold, but those little suckers are strong. Critiques welcome… thanks for looking!

This is very utilitarian and should give years of effective service. It is a good solid build, and has all the elements of effective design. Well done.

In my shop, I find that when I build jigs and storage boxes adding what attractiveness I can to my tools increases my pleasure of using them. Those magnets are strong little suckers, aren’t they? Good concept.

Hey Tyler,

The flat top and magnets are a definite upgrade! You’ll appreciate not have to search around for the gun, then the nails, then the oil…

Looks great!
