Go-Anywhere Tool Tote
With plenty of room for all your essential tools, this easy-to-build tote packs in some interesting techniques and looks great, too.
There’s a balancing act that goes into designing a tool tote. On one hand, it should be big enough for everything you might need. On the other hand, it needs to be small enough to carry easily. The “Goldilocks” approach this tote takes walks that line nicely. In addition to a just-right size, the tote adds a sliding tray and a couple of drawers below the open upper compartment. These organize small tools and accessories so they won’t get lost. While practicality is the main reason for building the tote, we managed to sneak in a few techniques that make it fun to build: a little veneer work, flush-mounted hardware, shiplapped panels, and a shop-made dowel, just to name a few. This plan will lead you through every step to ensure your success.
