I’m not really sure what to call this thing. When it comes to be “finishing” time, I find that the stuff I am looking for is all over the place. When I am done, the stuff is everywhere in different places it doesn’t belong. I decided to make a little tote for it. It’s made from left over plywood from my sled(s) and some red oak I had hanging around. I banded the ply edges with oak, but when it came to the top edges, I had an idea. Why not put little ledges I can keep screwdrivers, nail sets and my counterboring bits. One just has holes, one has a tray routed out beause I couldn’t figure out how to get a pencil to stay in a hole.
Also I wanted to play with my routers. I added a lot of flutes everywhere and went nuts with the roundover bit. It looks a little cheesy, but it’s a shop fixture. The finish is some early american stain and arm r seal. I wasn’t careful with it at all because again, it’s a shop fixture
The fleur is general finishes milk paint and I painted it on before I stained. So far I keep my glues, sandpaper, vinyl gloves, a tape measure, wood screws, brads, needle nose pliers, tack cloths, dowels and an adjustable wrench in there. I had divider on the inside, but I took it out and now have more flexibility.
The cross cut sled with the miter fence was AWESOME! I was able to repeat all the angles very quickly and was simple to set up
