    My dad made his own toolbox out of an old refrigerator someone was giving away. He gutted it all out, added tracks and drawers and slapped on some swivel casters to roll it around.

    Re: Craftsman Toolbox Plans?

    I didn't add anything on the inside, I wanted it open to put big stuff in that wouldn't fit in my box. It's made of 10ga., I know that's way overkill but that's what I had to work with. It has a piece of UHMW on the top, it makes a good dry erase board.

    it's always better to make it yourself, I think. Is it aluminum? Looks good.

    Re: Craftsman Toolbox Plans?

    Well…there it is. Two years, about $140 in hardware and consumables and a bunch of scrap aluminum. Except for the casters, drawer slides and gas shocks (to raise the lid), every component was scratch built from aluminum.

    Some added features:
    There’s a single key lock mounted in the lid that will lock the lid and all 17 drawers.

    There’s a hidden button under the front top frame rail to the left of the center post that extends the spring loaded foot lever at the bottom. Step on the foot lever and the lid opens about 4” where the gas shocks take over and raise it the rest of the way.

    The inside of the drawers and the tray under the lid have been painted with a thick coat of Duplicolor Truck Bed Liner.

    Still to do…The entire exterior of the case will be ground smooth and sanded up to 220 grit paper. Then everything will be vertically brushed with a stainless steel “shoe brush” to give the exterior a consistent finish (the drawer fronts have already been done).

    Re: Craftsman Toolbox Plans?

    Imagineer thats looks great. As much as I would love to have the time to build something like that myself I dont. I also dont really belive in paying tons of money for them. For stuff like toolboxes that really dont ever go bad Im a firm beliver in buying used. Check craigslist.com ebay.com local newspapers, ect. If you have the paitence 300 bucks will go much further if you buy used.

    Wow! You really have to be one proud fabricator when you see that box. A midsize box like that from one of the majors go for like 3k and up.

    Hope in the time it took to build you didn't acquire more tools so you need to start making another. LOL

    that would be a good thing not a bad one. more tools is always good and an excuse to make another box like that must not be hard to come up with. 8^))

    Re: Craftsman Toolbox Plans?

    VERY cool undertaking. I privately despise my brother whos got the Snap On XXL (a $14,000 system). Hate to post this, but I just bought a $560Craftsman toolchest from Sears for $240. Funny thing is that I filled it and STILL have tools laying about! Guess I needed more storage than I thought.
    Too bad the sale is over, and I dont have another coupon for ya. The key is to keep looking from time to time.
