As you expand your collection of quality tools that you depend on for precision work every day, consider housing them in a cabinet that’s part customized storage, part showcase. This clamshell design meets these needs head-on with a variety of mix-and-match tool holding options, drawers in two sizes, cubbies, and a hand plane gallery.
Enjoy nature’s bounty in a comfy outdoor chair that loves you back with its comfortable, polyester sling and cushioned headrest. Made from cypress, the assembly weighs a modest 10 pounds, making it ideal for folding and toting from place to place. The secret behind its construction lies in the sturdy connecting nuts and bolts and their precise locations on facing parts. Building shouldn’t take more than a day. Use the day after to test the chair at a choice location with a favorite beverage.
