Removable, Fixed, and Sliding

Continuing with my carving tool-box, I managed to get all three tool trays completed. The carcase secures the fixed-tray.


The removable-tray fits snugly inside, while the “sliding-tray” does what most drawers do, it slides in and out! Each tray currently holds four gouges but has room for eight. That’s room for twenty-four gouges in this rather small box. All that’s left is attaching hinge cleats and fitting the lid.


They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Right? Well, perhaps this short video is worth even more.
