  1. Scrap wood tool tote

    I made this tote out of some scrap wood I had laying around. I built it mainly to practice hand tool joinery. The sides and tall uprights are maple. The ends are Douglas fir. The handle and bottom are oak. Joints used: Stopped groove Stopped dado Dovetail Wedged mortise and tenon I added pegs...
  2. Tool tote in sapele and maple

    This tool tray is 14×9.5×9.5 using 5/16 stuff. I ran out of thicker material so I just laminated the handle. It is just long enough to contain a regular size hammer.
  3. Silent Auction Tool Tote made from scraps

    A bad habit of mine is when I start a project, I reach for a fresh board and end up with many left over scraps which constantly clog my wood storage bin. I decided to use those small scraps for a small project. The design is that of a simple tool tote, but I will place bottles of wine in the...
  4. Tool Tote

    Holiday gift made from reclaimed wood. Handle was from a dowel I had lying around. I used a scrap of the pine from the tote for the box joint size. I have a jig for a small size joint but didn't think it would look right and I didn't feel like making another jig to have hanging around. So a...
  5. Tool Tote

    I was tired of moving tools one handful at a time and risking dropping them so i built a tool tote. The entire body is mahogany with a ply board bottom. The box joints are reinforced with square pegs which are about 2" long and the remaining joints are mainly mortise and tenon with a few lap...
  6. Bar anyone?

    We had a custom house built about 3 years ago and had this space close to the kitchen that was just screaming for a BAR. Looked like a great project for me but the bar would be attached as an extension to the kitchen cabinets. Had to match the stain and make it look like it belonged. Was able to...
  7. Japanese tool tray - for the toolbox. (post)

    Japanese tool tray for the toolbox. My sketch for the japanese inspired tool tray. This post comes from my Japanese tool tote blog. To complete the setup for working with Japanese tools I wanted a little tool tray that I could use to hold and carry tools while working, especially to keep the...
  8. Son's 1st Toolbox

    This was something that I had been wanting to build for my son for quite some time now. I gave it to him for Christmas this year. He is 4 1/2 right now and he mostly stores his toy cars in it (although he does have one real set of sockets and a screwdriver in there). I wanted to built it so that...
  9. Walnut Tool Tote

    Finally finished this tote after 18 months in process. Lots of life moments in between the start to finish. Moving, new house, new job, third kid, shop setup, etc. I feel very blessed. The design is from a Woodsmith magizine article, which I modified a bit. All walnut, except for a few strips...
  10. Handy Manny tool tote

    My cuz is getting married tomorrow and in lieu of gifts they are doing a wishing well for money. I wish I would have done the same at my wedding. I thought it would be a good idea to make something for their little boy. Handy Manny is a Disney character and of course his tools talk. This is a...
  11. HAND-TOOL TOTE -- made using power and hand tools

    Under 30 hand tools can be packed into this tool box. The tool configuration/mix can be changed by changing the foam inserts. This product is great for rust prevention: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=68931&cat=1,43456 Used the box for more than three months with no rust damage...
  12. Tool tote / caddy (MaFe’s version) post

    Tool tote (MaFe's version) this is from the tool tote travel blog The short story is that I wanted to make this tool tote, to make my drawing come to life, but also to take a travel in the ways of doing things with hand or machines, how to join wood in different ways. To do the same thing in...
  13. Tool Tote

    Tool tote made similar to Roy Underhill's infamous tote. Since I don't have Roy's book "The Woodwrights Apprentice" this tote is a bit different than the original. The main difference is the size. I made mine 20" long x 10" wide x 5" tall as a smaller size to carry around misc. tools while doing...
  14. Christopher's tool box

    Late in the summer, Christopher told me that he would like to build a toolbox. So last week we got together and built this one. It is made of big-box-store materials - select 1×6 pine, 1/4 inch luan plywood. The design is from the late and great Danny Proulx, with a few adjustments for a...
  15. Little Roy - Son's first tool tote

    I wanted to build something for my son. I had been watching Shannon over at The Renaissance Woodworker build the classic Roy Underhill tool tote and wanted to try one. Then I thought my son might like his own, so I used his as a test run. The tote, except for the bottom, is 1/2 poplar. The...
  16. Roy Underhill Tool Tote

    I've been watching the Woodwrights shop as long as I can remember and have always been a fan. I thought it would be fun to try and make the tool tote Roy carries with him during the start of the show. This project interested me mostly because of the joinery and the fact that it is a fixture on...
  17. Don't laugh....

    I have a pile of frequently used tools that reside pretty much permanently on my assembly bench. And I'm constantly having to move the "pile" around to make room for various assembly projects. So I looked around the shop for something to keep them all in, and found a little tote that one of my...
  18. tool tote

    I saw this tote in the background of a "The English Woodworker" blog and I made a bunch of them. I made large, medium, and small ones and gave them away for Xmas gifts. I made this one for myself with hand tools only. I used a carcass and dovetail saw, a rabbet plane and a Record 405 multi...
  19. Chinquapin Tool Tote

    I usually like to carve the handle for these totes, but I opted for a simple oak dowel this time. It works. I just love the way chinquapin takes a finish. After sanding thru the grits it is a nebulous white box. Wipe it down with some Danish Oil and it turns into an amazing piece. Chinquapin...
  20. Wood Toolbox

    I have been wanting to find a better way to organize my hand tools for a while now. We had a lot of snow in the Midwest yesterday so I took the opportunity to build this carrier. It does have a slight resemblance to a middle school shop project, but it accomplishes my goal of having each tool...
