Devlin is a young man that lives nearby that has shown an interest in woodworking. Here is one of his first projects – the classic carpenter’s tool box.

Devlin and his tool kit.

Naturally I had to seed the tool kit …

Nicely done Devlin.
You’re a good man MadMark!

Congrats Devlin. Make sure to scuff sand the ends of the boards. I can see splinters in a close up pic. If you carry it under your arm like in the pic, that is a BAD way to find a splinter. Plus it’s tender under your arm, hurts worse than a finger.

Good on you for finding a student Mark.

Congratulations on first of what I’m sure will be many. Remember what you learned on this one, and learn a bit more on the next.

TheRealSteveN mentioned the splinters on the end. Next project, learn about “easing” the corners. It will make handling easier on the hands.

-- Thanks, Steve
