Tool box and Cleaning Caddy

Submitted by moemoore on Thu, 08/11/2011 - 00:48

I saw Ana's plans for a toolbox and thought that's great! Then I saw another members adaption for a cleaning caddy and I knew I had to build both!

I build on my lanai (porch) in Hawaii, so my work area is fairly small. It was easy to build these at the same time, and I made plenty use of my Kreg jig!

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
under $20
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
Whitewood boards
Finish Used
I had some really ugly "pumpkin" orange that the previous owners had painted the front door with. While cleaning out paint, I combined it with some white and off-white paint, getting a nice creamy color. I used that (2-3 coats) after priming the piece. I then used some mis-tinted brown paint for the trim. Finished with 2-3 coats of a poly finish.

Your work space may be small, but I think I'd take your view any day! Just beautiful. And, the tool box and caddy are really nice, too!
