    Marking box

    Phase one of what I'm hoping will be three or four phases{sections/units}, but after all the flaws in this attempt...
    I do have a new found respect for those of you with skills! the only skill I'm enhancing at, is camera angle flub hiding.

    Don't get me wrong, it's not all 'that bad' and I'm thrilled it's useable, but I have a terrible habit of flying by the seat of my pants.
    Plans{those other than in my mind} just can't seem to find their way to paper for me ...Am I doomed to eternal unhappiness in my work?

    FWIW...Red Oak{solid & ply}, Mahogany & Walnut slathered with a mixture of Blo, Min-wax antique oil & MS...debating on drawer liners of some sort, or not.

    Wow factor is high on that Ken. Nice.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Ken that looks fantastic. If there are faults you will have to do a better job of pointing them out.

    Looks like a great job from where I'm sitting.

    If you're considering drawer lining, how about flocking?

    Ken,

    That is really neat.

    I have a strong desire for organization and most items have a "Home" place. Some of the "Home" places are not logical nor ideal because that's where it was in the beginning and when I move it, I can't find it.

    I seem to keep moving things as I add new tools. I will be glad when it is settled down. That is when I hope it is as organized as your marking chest. I hope it is half as good looking as your chest.

    Enjoy,
    Jim

    Vaughn,

    My oldest son lined his tool chest with the rust colored abrasive pads that I had. Somehow I think he missed the boat on that one.

    Enjoy,
