Here is a bench that can also be used to tote your tools, made from 1ea 1X12X8 plus a dowel. Stained and finished with paste wax.

Pretty neat idea. What do you do with all the tools you tote while you use the bench?

Yes, I thought that would be a problem. However, a lot of jobs around the house and garden only require two or three tools, so it’s not like you are trying to carry around every tool in your tool box. Using the bench as a tote just frees one of your hands to carry something else or open a door. I have made 6 of these and given them to family members and everyone has found it to be very useful.

I really like the design of the legs and the tote support. Art and function.
