I just found out that I am being deployed around the first of the year and I was wanting to be able to take my woodworking with me in one form or another. I am thinking of building this tool box from Popular Woodworking #181.
Here is a link to the article with a little more info about the box. http://www.popularwoodworking.com/articleindex/one-for-the-road
I’m not sure what the conditions will be when I get there as far as material availability but I am wanting to work on my dovetail skills by making small boxes and what not.
So I am looking for suggestions on what to fill the small space I have with. Space will obviously be at a premium, for a tool to make the cut it will need to be versatile or completely indispensable. Weight will also be a factor as I will have to have the box shipped to me.
There are a few tools that are a given such as a dovetail saw, small carcass saw, chisel for chopping out dovetails, a mallet, dividers, marking knife and a marking gauge but I am looking for suggestions to fill the rest of the box.
Let me know what you would recommend.
