Now that I’m sorta settled on my bench–kinda, anyway–it’s time to start thinking about my tool chest.
For me, this is a major priority because I’m dealing with a less than advantageous situation here. I’m using an old crate as a tool chest, and it’s little more than a hinged box. It doesn’t organize my tools and it really doesn’t protect them either.
I mean, the monstrosity is just a hinged crate. It was never meant to do any of that.
So a tool chest of some description is a priority. This leads to my conundrum: Do I try and reinvent the wheel, or feel like I’m following the crowd when it comes to designs?
