    Very nice looking tote Axel.

    Interesting idea of using the handle risers as separators for small storage at the ends of the box.

    Something others will surely copy in future tool totes.

    THAT is a very nice looking tote!

    I may have to adapt it to a version for my own use....

    Axel, I am enjoying this following along, I have grown to love hand tool woodworking. My two Stanley 45's have a three sided spur with the fourth quadrant being a no spur blank to avoid wear on non cross cut grooves. I suppose some that I have seen are more of a knife blade than a spur (tiny three spur piece) and all I can say is when in need of an edge touchup you want to, like a chisel, preserve the flat on one side.

    Axel, that is a thing of great artistry. Well done. I would leave it behind in the woods within the first six trips just because I wouldn't be able to find it unless I leave it in my truck bed. So mine (less aestheticaly pleasing) is painted bright orange.

    Can you post some more pics of the holes in the riser and it looks like a kind of latch please? The haft on the axe you chose is very similar to the one I had in mind to use for this project. Curious how finicky it is to carry without the box sliding off the axe.

    Beautifully done, I really like the handle support details and the dovetails are tight. I'd also be prone to leaving it in the woods!

    Axel, that is a unique, attractive and useful toolbox. What the Neanderthal forum needs are woodworkers who love hand tools and love to use them. Well done.

    Jim, I hope so !
    As I did not create the original concept, I am just passing it over.

    Scott, many thanks for coming back to my issue.

    Pardon me, I am not sure to understand. On my 78, I guess I have the same kind of 3 head spur as on the 45, are you saying that they are not ground the same from the factory ? Or did you modify them ?

    I find hard to believe million Stanley users did not have my problem in 100 years.

    Christopher, many thanks. The gear inside the box is full of colors, plastic boxes, chainsaw files rolls etc, soi t stands out quite well…until now.

    Thank you Michael, as I was writting in my first post, when I saw this for the first time, it was this version…and I immediately knew I would make one.
