To start off, I was totally impressed with John Heisz’s video on You Tube, I implore you to follow him. This was a great system of stacking trays to fill with what ever you might need and carry them to wherever you need them. John used 1/2” plywood. I used recycled oak from an old telephone central office frame, which was being trashed in Flushing, Queens. Having this wood since 1996, I though this might be a perfect occasion to use some. Using John’s idea, but not his measurements, and construction method, I did a little over kill with the hand cut dovetails. I. Also added suitcase draw clasps to attach the trays so I would be able to connect one to the other. Thank you John, you gave me an idea some something I think every shop needs…less plastic carriers and more wood to show your skills.
The finish is my mixture of 1/3 linseed oil, 1/3 mineral spirits, 1/3 polyurethane.. Rub it on,and rub it in.
