As many of you know, I work in politics and, being an election year, work has kept me away from this site and rust hunting for the summer. However, I did steal a moment or two in the shop. I will be posting pictures of my newly made portable tool box, based on the one in Tom Fidgen's book. I will use this box to carry my demo tools when I work at the Charlton Park Carpenters Shop. I also managed to pick up a new tool chest, once owned by a J.R. Mell. It is walnut, hand dovetailed and quite beautiful. I will be doing a write up of that one as well, the week after Election Day.
Pictures of my existing tool storage can be found here and here
My problem now is that I have too many tool storage options, too many tools and no clear plan for utilizing them all. I suppose that is what makes me a Galoot...
