Have not gotten round to start building yet, but plans are laid out very nicely, easy to understand.

The Mechanic’s toolbox is a fantastic build and I highly recommend it. The plan was detailed and easy to follow and the finished product is both a functional and attractive addition to my shop. This is the second one of Tommy’s plans that I’ve built; the first was the workbench v.2. Together they form the heart of my new wood shop and are perfect for the 30 square feet available in my garage for my shop. Like the workbench, I think you get a product worth much more than the cost of the materials to build it. Plus, you get all the fun of creating it with your own hands. I am an inexperienced woodworker and have learned a lot form these two projects. So glad I bought this plan. Keep it up, Tommy . . . love your stuff!
