This tool case is strong, comfortable, with plenty of room for hand tools. The two trays lift out for access to the open (non-partitioned) lower section for larger tools such as saws and jointer planes. You won't need very much material to build it; you may even find you have enough scrap wood to make it. If you are concerned about weight, choose a softwood or plywood.

    Ever wish you could get a digital project plan that allowed you to customize the design to suit your own needs? Here they are! Digital project plans in SketchUP, the free Google drawing program.

    Are there any other advantages? For starters, you'll get your plan immediately. Your digital plan will consist of drawings in PDF format, with detailed, measured drawings and a cutlist. Full-size drawings are included for critical parts and templates. All of the drawings can be printed on a typical consumer-grade computer printer -- the larger template drawings can be taped together or you can take the file on a disc or flash drive (or email) to a local copy center for printing on Arch D size paper. The projects also have written instructions to guide you through construction process. If you want to modify one of the projects, the SketchUp version of the plan will be perfect for you.

    Available free from Google by clicking here, SketchUp allows you to manipulate the drawing and make as many changes as you like to fit your needs -- or make more substantial changes to the design. You're limited only by your creativity.

    An excellent Toolbox Review by ANDY

    As a UK Carpenter I needed a smaller Toolbox to go on site with occasionally I hate to see chippy's with plastic boxes. So decided on this one. You can demonstrate to anyone looking at it your hand dovetail skills, make it to a size that suits you, overall it look impressive.
    I used reclaimed Douglas Fir floor joists, a pig of a wood to work with as very dry and splinters easily, but boy does it look good as the timber was 80 years old.

    Customers I work for love it, it brought me more work, great advert.
