  • Carving tool tote.

    I wanted a place to store my gouges and whatnot on my table. I also wanted something portable because I have been doing some carving outside while my kids are playing.......so I made this. The handle swings out of the way when it's on my desk and the drawer opens from both sides.

      Beautiful tote. I’ve been using meal containers with lids from the dollar store that I can throw into my back pack. Yours is much nicer!

          Nice Anders! At some point, I will post my new organized chaos. It's still a work in progress.

          Thanks for sharing!

              Thanks everyone.
              What's nice is that my wife got the poplar board for free off a facebook "buy nothing" neighborhood group she is a part of.
              I had to buy a few 2x4s the other day and they were almost 6 bucks each! Lumber is crazy expensive right now.

                Very nice tote! Question, do you mark the handles so you know which gouge you are picking up? I had to do that with mine, I've never heard anyone else say they do, so I figure it is just me.

                  No matter which way you set it down, you can open that drawer.
                  Me too: how do you tell the tools apart from the identical butt ends?

                  I had to mark a bunch of my crooked knives as each has the blade buried in a block of plastic foam.

                      I do wood burn the handles so I know what is what. I also put them back in order, so I can grab them without looking at the handle. Also when seated at the table you have a pretty good view of the business ends of the tools. I haven't marked the Stubai gouges yet because I just got them. I think Stubai may be my go to brand for gouges now. They are really nice.

                        Stubai make really good tools. Decades ago, I was chopping steps with a Stubai ice axe.
                        These days, I have a Stubai7/75 carver's adze and a Stubai draw knife. Reliable and durable.

                            It's always nice to have a small, well organized toolbox for the things you keep at hand while carving, even if you don't travel.

                              It's nice to have a wooden tool tote, although most carvers at my club buy plastic tool boxes. They argue the wooden ones are too heavy. Maybe so, but they sure look better than plastic. I have a regular tool box and a smaller canvas one for when I'm travelling. The canvas one holds a strop, two gouges, knife in sheath, glove, ruler, pencil, Band-Aid, and thumb guard. The wooden one contains spare wood, a bigger strop and all the tools I need (and some I don't) in a bigger leather bag. Here they are.
