Well, the chisel tray is done...

Recommended Posts

Took a bit today, to assemble the parts, and fit things into the tool chest.    Tray turned out a bit wider than needed.  Lumber was a bit thicker than needed to be.    had to cut a rebate along the tote tray's side, to allow the tray to sit down in the chest.    Next time, will use a thinner stock..( and there seems to always be a "next time")



Ok, a look or two of the completed tray, all nestled into it's new homening-imag0015-4059-31.jpg?width=750I suppose I had better hide than level, before Moody shows up. A view from the other directionning-imag0016-4059-78.jpg?width=750I think this chest is getting ....almost full?    nah, I think i can fit a few more things in there...

This keeps up, I may have to build a second tool chest.....



Thinking of adding a few rods.   The kind used on cantilevered tool boxes, wher you open the lid, and the tray would swing up and out.   Not sure IF it is do-able, will look into it..  



If you look closely, you might see a few tools you will reconize....Like a Stanley SW#103......

I suppose I could fasten all three together, into a single tote? Might need to make a few brackets under the chisel tray, though. 



There are two chisels that may not fit in the trays, thoughning-imag0015-4062-46.jpg?width=721Yep, that is a full sized note book.   The corner chisel is 7/8" , and the regular one is 1-3/8" wide.    Just a couple "small" chisels.    Think they might get lost in the tool chest??

Just don't let them get to know the Pencils. They will really be good hiders then.
