Here's My Stuff!

by Gary Smith
Hurricane, UT

This is a tool box I made to keep my hand tools in one place. The design was based more around necessity than anything else. I looked around at a lot of tool boxes - most were real big and very fancy, and that's fine, I like that - but I just used the leftover wood in my shop. The box is poplar with some maple and the plywood is birch. On the inside, the tool holders on the sides go to the bottom, and they all slip out. So the box could be used for a lot of different things. It's really easy to make inexpensively and it is very strong.

I like Making Miniature Chuck Wagons as well.

I also built my work bench - I would have gotten some better shots but my shop is full!

I don't know how I got by without this bench.
