Hey everyone, I hope if you followed the 3 part blog series of this build that you have been on the look out for this project.

All handmade from pine this spoon makers tool tote is lightweight and great for short hikes out into the wilderness to fetch different wood species for spoon work. The finish is….........

2 coats of Dark Walnut Watco Danish Oil
2 coats of Zinsser Bullseye clear shellac
2 coats of BLO

The plans for this project are as usual….... just an idea in my head, to paper, than hopefully to finish….lol.

I hope you enjoy this piece and continue to enjoy the natural gifts of the great outdoors!

Thank you all for taking the time and interest in my work.
Also a great thanks for the inspiration of your great projects!

All the best,

Nice Tote, To bad you couldn’t incorporate a stool into this design, You could tote it & park it.

I love the design…

Love the little tote Joe. Hope you give it plenty of use. Not a lot beats being out
in the fresh air, messing around with knives.
