This small tote was fashioned from a warped old plank I picked up at a car-boot sale. It’s all the more satisfying when you make something half-decent out of seemingly unpromising starting materials. I would barely have known where to start without Paul’s marvellous instruction. The finish is 3 coats of Danish oil.
It’s destined to be used for carrying bird food out to the garden.
Thanks guys, and thanks Paul – I think the teacher deserves more credit than the student!
@edfly: The chisel rack was a quick addition, because unless tools are within arm’s reach, I end up covering the workbench with them or using a less ideal tool that is closer to hand.
I don’t use the shelves behind it that often, but the rack is secured by inward facing mitres and dowels, so it can be removed in a few moments. I did also consider attaching it to the back edge of the workbench, but thought it might get in the way sometimes.
