Chinese ToolboxesSay you are a Chinese woodworker and, during your seven years of apprenticeship you have made a full set of tools. Because much of your work will be on site, you will have to find yourself a toolbox to carry your tools around. Introduction to Chinese ToolboxesOn first sight toolboxes are simply boxes to hold and transport tools.

Wooden carpenters box

I have been working on a wooden carpenters style box for a few weeks now. Im trying to stay as close to the metal one im replacing cause of size/weight/ bulky issues. Originaly i wanted to use box joints but was unable with the stacked dadoe set i have. Looked into using router but by time i finally found a easy to make and understand jig i settled for what i know. Used screws w/dowel plugs.

Benchtop Tool Chest #1: Roughing it out

01-19-2009 06:04 PM by SPalm | 4 comments »

This is kind of random. I really want a small set of drawers on top of my bench for all the little stuff that accumulates. I want to make it attachable to the top and hang over the back by about a foot. This would allow me to remove it when needed and not take up too much space.
