Project Information

About twenty years ago I purchased an inexpensive tool set that I keep in my truck. It had come in handy over the years, however: the case being plastic with plastic hinges and catch has finally broken off. With a winters day I thought I'd build a wood case that could house the tool holders. I used 1/2 inch pine with walnut splines and 1/4 inch birch plywood for the top and bottom. The hardware is stuff I had salvaged from other discarded cases.

How did you attached the plastic tool case to the wood? Construction adhesive, tension fit?

I used construction adhesive. the weight of the tools was enough to allow the adhesive a good bond between the wood and plastic'

Great idea and a nice build. I have nice shop filled with great tools, but we bought a cheap plastic briefcase tool holder similar to yours with the most useful household tools. We keep it my wife's sewing room and it's been in use constantly for about 20 years for small DIY work. I love it because I don't have to run out to my shop every time I need a hand tool and I can easily carry it with me to where I working.
