I finally got around to building a tool tray for the toolbox I built over the summer. Not having to rummage around for the smaller tools in the bottom of the box and worrying about dings is a relief.

Made from poplar (really a great wood for handtools) and leftover Alaskan yellow cedar from the toolbox build. Finished with a few light coats of shellac and wax.

A guy who does work around the house doesn’t relazine how handy one of these really are, untill he has made one. You can go to your shop, and visulize what all you are going to need, and then load one of these up.

My only change is that a span from one narrow side to the other, (maybe in your case one that would slip in and lock in with a peg or two but removeable) for a one hand center hand hold. I have one also, and I almost always am carring something else in my other hand. But in doing this, I do have to worry about loading it from side to side as it will tilt very easy.

Thanks folks.

neverenougftackle – yeah, I’m debating on the handle in the tray as I often take the tray to my kitchen table, er, workbench. Starting off simple for now, and will decide whether or not to screw a handle to the bottom. Thanks for the feedback.
