Some time ago I posted my rolling tool caddy on Wood Magazine’s shop projects gallery. Months went by without me giving it another thought, until I was contacted the other day by the editor of the upcoming 3rd edition of “America’s Best Home Workshops”. It seems he wants to include my humble project in the gallery section of best shop projects.

I’m told the publication will not be out until this coming spring, so I have to wait patiently for fame and fortune to arrive. <g> Regardless, I felt honored to be asked, and I just wanted to share that with my fellow Lumberjocks who provide me with so much inspiration. Thanks!

Pretty spiffy caddy. It’s about time they got around to recognizing your genius. Congratulations.

It looks like something I could use in my shop if I only had floor space to roll it around in …

Thanks, everyone!

MrWoody, my understanding is that this is not a regular magazine issue, but a special edition from the publishers of Wood Magazine that comes out periodically. I was told that the 2nd edition is on newsstands currently, and that my project will appear in the 3rd edition, due out in the early spring.
