Finished in time for class


2 tool chests loaded in my Wrangler. 

Whew!  I finished my Dutch tool chest just in time for my Hand Plane II class tomorrow night. I’m behind on the blog posts of the building process, but I will catch-up soon.  Suffice for now to know that I am really liking the chest as a practical addition to my shop.

In my last post I hinted about the giveaway tool of the night.  My final hint – there are two tool chests loaded in my Wrangler right now.  If at least 6 people show up for class only one of them should be coming home with me.  No, I’m not giving away the new one.

About the class – if you are on the fence about coming, here is the schedule of what I plan to cover tomorrow.
