« Part 13: More on the Layout Tray Part 14 of Ridgid toolboxes... and fixing the sadness series Part 15: The Wooden Box is completed »

Except for final sanding and painting, the layout tray is complete.

I really suffered for those little sticks that surround the pencils. I was, um, challenged by measuring and cutting those 45 degree half-laps. Obviously in the future something else will likely live in that space too.

Now on to the bottom of the wooden box. I know I want my 16 oz hammer in there, and a selection of files and rasps. So let’s start with the files.

What we have here is just a piece of 1/2” plywood with 1/4” dowels glued into it. It was a comedy of errors but it’ll work out ok.

Here’s the chisel holder in the box. You can see that the hammer dominates. It’s possible the hammer will have to be moved to the bottom of the Ridgid.
