I bought an INCRA I-BOX Jig. So I grabbed some third hand plywood scraps and gave it a whirl. Wow fast and easy. So now I had the beginnings of a box. And it just of kind grew from there.

I think the plywood is walnut, lid; red oak, handle; white oak, bottom; half inch baltic birch, the inside parts are from whatever scrap was handy. I bought the foam at a fabric store.

Stained with minwax Special Walnut, allowed to dry 24 hours, minwax Ebony stain added and wiped right off. The Ebony stain only added to the outside of the box. let it dry a few days.

Finished with Zinsser clear shellac and deft gloss brushing lacquer both sprayed with hvlp.
Knocked down the high gloss with steel wool and just buffed with a dry cloth.

It is way to heavy to be practical, but I like it any way. Keeps everything in one place. So if I need to take it to my moms house or where ever do repairs I don’t have to hunt everything down.

Oh and I don’t have two extra battery packs yet. Just a little Photoshop magic to show where everything goes.

That’s pretty ingenious. I can see it being real handy when you need to grab and carry. Nice work. You should do a review if the I-BOX jig.
