A year or so ago I did my teenager rebel against getting old and said no mas, no mas to watching my diet.....If I die so be it....I can't takes it no more, and went on a binge of eating and drinking just what I wanted when I wanted it....Damn life was good. Except I went from around 200 lbs (about 30 lbs over weight) to 240 lbs. Damn Bubba you are fat, your "fat" pants are tight and you haven't seen the equipment in months. Bottom line, about a month ago it's back on low carbs, forgoing my loved beans and cornbread, tacos, and any thing else that is good including beer and whisky.
MsBubba to the rescue. Yesterday while surfing the web she came across an article that said: "Whisky has no carbs", the skies are blue once more, the birds are singing, and there is a rainbow on the horizon.
Of the two, booze or food, I would pick food any day but one is a hell of a lot better than none. BTW, maybe I enjoyed the new found freedom a little much last night but that 12 year old Macallan was sure smooth going down.
Other than a boozy afternoon I did get a little done in the shop. The Cherry shorts for the tool box lid have not showed. It's not a big deal, I can make and fit the lid with the box loaded, so that is what I did. The big advantages of loading the box are twofold: I get it out of the middle of the shop and placed where it will stay and I get most of the tools moved to their new place so I can move forward on making 10 lbs of stuff fit into a 5 lb shop.
I did not clean up the interior of the box, all the joinery markings are still there, I did not plane or sand either the inside or outside of the trays and dividers, or the inside of the box. I figure in a 100 years or so if, and it is a big if, it doesn't become a toy box per Bob then folks looking at it might enjoy seeing the tool marks and the marking out of the box and joints.
I expect the "load" will change many times but here is the first load. Top drawer mostly things used daily and/or normally found on the workbench. Second drawer most of my joinery planes and tools. Back side of case H&R's with molding planes, middle wood stock bench planes, front wall will have a chisel rack and saw till. All subject to change often.
From the side with both drawers open.
The front with both drawers open.
The front with drawers closed to the rear and some toes.
The front with drawers closed forward and a red belly.
Not too bad considering how life gets in the way. Looking back I started the tool box build around the first of March, so a couple or three months for the build. I can live with that.
