I built a toolbox as a Hand Tool School project. Quite a few members had requested it, and I decided to take it one step beyond something just to carry tools by adding in a sturdy benchtop and some workholding functionality. What I ended up with is a sort of mobile workbench.
I have now tested it in "the field" (literally in one case) and I could not be happier with how well it performs. I can easily size stock and cut joinery using this toolbox/workbench as well as carry an impressive amount to tools to address a wide variety of tasks.
After posting some pictures of this tool box on my Facebook and Google+ pages, I got quite a few requests for more information. Hence the following video. Enjoy!
Okay, your Turn. Toolboxes take many shapes and forms. What cool designs have you come up with and how do you deal with working outside of your workshop? Please share your thoughts and experience in the comments below.
