Just Monkeying Around (Making an angle grinder case.)

I needed a new carrying case for my old angle grinder and accessories.
So, just for the fun of it, I took the two ugliest boards I could find out in the shop and tried to make a nice new home for it.

It was a lot of fun and a little nicer then the old plastic junk case.


This last photo is of my “poor man’s CNC”

Thanks for looking and have a great day !

-- Having fun...Eric

Sweet, you gave those ugly boards new life and turned them into something beautiful. I’m with Lew, its almost too pretty to use.

That’s a pretty classy home for an angle grinder.

That’s a nice case for your grinder. I am inspired to make one for my power drill.

Fun to do that sort of thing with whatever is on hand. My cutoff cart, currently getting a coat of Watco, is made partially from reclaimed lumber, shipping materials, etc. Working this weekend, but hope to get it in use and posted soon. Your router designs worked out well, thanks for the tip…........

You are an artist in your own right, you take such ugly worn items and find a way to bring out their hidden beauty it looks fantastic.

I think I have the same angle grinder .. when I get settled in I’m going to have to build a box just like this. Though this weekend, I’m taking over a bit of my dad’s basement and building a small cheap workbench to tinker on.

that is a pretty sweeet case…it just goes to show that any wood can be used and enhanced some so it comes from looking like a thorn, and comes out a rose..great job
