Looks like the same idea but more drawers and turnings.

One question - not meant to be cheeky either - why do you leave the labels on your chisel handles?

:lol: That set is from 1980's~ and those really old labels are hell to take off, I've managed most of the set but got lazy with the ones that I don't use often.

Indeed, I need to get those stickers off. I feel like I've left the tag on my jacket sleeve when I look at them. :oops:

Perhaps for consistency's sake, you could add conspicuous price tags to all your garments, part of an avant garde statement about the commodification of life...

Hope you don't mind the mild poking of fun.

My wife read that comment and suggested I may have finally met someone who truly understands me.

Good morning! I decided to move these up from Saturdays to Thursdays. My latest post on building the sliding doors which will hide but allow access to wiring that will run behind a shelf for storing electronics.
