Had some 1/2” plywood scraps I thought I’d fool around with. Ended up building this little tote for my nail guns. I didn’t think about trying to line up the handle until later on, so that’s why it’s not even. This tote fits underneath the shelf on one side of my table saw cabinet.

Fun way to pass the day while cleaning up the garage.

Thanks guys, I probably got a little carried away with the holes for the handle. But I was excited to use my new drill press and was playing around with a 2.5” hole saw I had chucked up to make some 2.5” circles for my kids to play around with. If it had been part of my original plan, I probably would have used a 1.5” spade bit instead.

But it felt good to be in out in the garage and cutting wood. Which is what it’s all about.

Have your say...
