Since I made this yard cart back in the summer I've been wanting a tool box on it. Working around the yard & garden this past summer I got tired of my tools rolling around inside. Sometimes I had to search for them inside dirt, gravel & whatever else I was hauling. Another reason was cutting & hauling firewood out of the woods so I thought this would be good to keep my equipment out of the cart area.
This is a mock up of what I want.
I had some scrap 3/4" scrap plywood to make the box.
I used the same material for the sleeves that will hold the chainsaw's. I used some 3/8" plywood for spacers in between to form the pockets.
I wanted to make this removable so I made some brackets using 3/16"x 1" flat stock. I heated these & bent them on the vice.
All packed up to see how everything fits. I put some mixed gas, bar oil, come along, nylon rope with hooks, wedge, screw driver, pliers, & chain file. When I leave I'll have a few more things like a coffee thermos & snacks. The wood you see in this pic was some I cut last year I hauled down to the shop. Yeah I know it sounds like a long trip & it will be. I took my first trip yesterday morning & it was definitely a journey. I'll share that on another thread later on today with a lot of pics. One little clue everything worked out fantastic!
