  1. Few weeks ago my Dad brings me this dilapidated looking wooden box. Cracked sides, falling apart and has that musty stale air smell. Tells me he needs this fixed up and make sure it will be able to handle rough use, use screws he tells me. He is in a K-9 Search and Rescue Unit so they are on the move and have to set up, then move out again. Have no idea what goes in it. Took it apart, pieces broke, a real mess. The top, useless, nothing salvaged. Hinges and hardware, a disaster just chunked them. Replaced the bottom and ends with some 3/4 ish plywood scrap I had as well as the lid. Used some of the old broken pieces to make the frame for the lid and glued it up. Same with the box part. Since Dad mentioned screws I added them as well, ya know just to be sure. Then looked at it and decided to have some fun and proceeded to use the entire box of 2 inch screws, 50 in all. The plywood was scrap so I used the nice looking sides on the inside and clear coated them with 3 coats of Helmsman Urethane. Not a furniture finish but I use it on stuff that goes outside like shovel handles and such. The outside I got creative. He had mentioned to make it visible and something he would notice at a glance. Looking through my collection I found this smoke gray, perfect for bottom, oil based and durable. Check. The top, hey purple is cool people!!! To finish it off I added his initials in bright white, he said be noticeable!! The handles are webbing for a weed eater long since retired. To make the holes for the 1/4 bolts I used to attach them I took a piece of 1/4 round stock and made a sharp point. Heated it up with a torch and then slid the webbing over it. Makes a perfect hole and will not rip. Should last a lifetime. All in all a fun project. I can imagine the looks it will get when he breaks this out next search.
