At the 23 minute mark in this video, Chad makes a 45 degree dado and parallel dado on the cutting horse top. How are they used?

Review from about 2-3 minutes into the video. Used for cutting angles with hand saw.

Chad explained at the beginning of the video that he had to cut molding at times and he used the dado cuts and a had saw to get his straight or 45 degree cuts.

Instead of using a miter book to cut thin moldings with. Great little box and aesthetically pleasing as well.

Thanks. It looks like I fast forwarded through the advertisements a bit to far. I have cut a lot of wood by hand and seen a lot of it cut. I couldn’t think of any way to conveniently use those. I always used a bigger miter box for molding. Never thought of really small 1/4 round ect.

I could see lots of possibilities using a snugly fit board sitting on edge to make a bigger one sided miter box, but that wasn’t included in the build.

Looks like a really handy multipurpose tote.

I like the feature where you turn it upside down and use it to stand on, I guess you just dump all your tools and saw dust on the floor when you want use it that way.

Being made out of wood I guess it would be heaver than a same sized metal tool box.

All in all it don’t think this well thought out project.

I think that feature will keep you from carrying everything you own around with you. I have a tool box that doubles as a step stool but it is too heavy to carry around. This is the ideal solution, turning it over to use it will assure you are only carrying the bare essentials ;-))
