Well, I was joking with Matt that since he didn’t have a use for his box he should send it to me. Clearly Matt is a very generous person and sent me the box, which I was certainly not expecting. As promised, I have found a use for it.
First I have to say that I cannot thank Matt enough for his generosity in sending it to me. I do have a little something to send him, and lucky for him, it is not something I actually made 🙂 The box is very well constructed! It’s also much larger than Matt’s photographs suggest. If this is Matt’s “practice box” I’m thoroughly impressed! And I have to say quite honored that he sent it to me. Also working on Paul’s class, I can really appreciate what went into making it.
I told Matt I would share some photos of what I would use it for, and thought I would share them with you guys also.
I brought the box into work with me for some of my personal tools.
Here you can see the box, next to my Paul Seller’s sliding dovetail box.
The tray is great, and small frequently used tools can go in there, and I can move the tray to where I’m working.
Inside, I can put larger, less frequently used items.
Thanks again Matt, I’m honored and humbled that you would send something like this, something that took so long to make, to someone that you don’t really know.
Edit to add, I thought the photos would show up inline, but that didn’t work, so you will have to match the caption to the photo on your own 🙂
