« Part 3: Top is finished Part 4 of Tool Chest series Part 5: Lid on and rejected as a blanket chest »

Roy (Underhill) had the basic shape of the handles turned for us by a local chair maker. I shaped mine and added a spacer so I could get my stubbie fingers around the grip. I put a thread insert on the back side of the spacer to aid in mountng them to the chest.


This picture shows the profile I came up with.

Looks very nice, I’m sure Roy’s class was both a joy and very educational.

Have your say...
