A tool box is one of my projects this summer. My wife says if I am going to keep my tools and bench in the living room, which is where they are now, my tool box has to at lease look like a piece of furniture. No more red roll around tool boxes, can't really blame her. I build a nice bench and I have been wanting to build myself a nice tool box for a long time now if just can settle on a design I would be all set.

Randy- I had a poster of the Studley (open doors) on my wall for a long while. It's amazing.

 

Apprentices first job was often building their own tool box.

What's an hour glass MD? it is a hour glass shaped mountain dulcimer. and a bending iron is a piece of metal tube that get hot enough to bend wet wood around most of them are electric, but there are some that are home made that use torches.
