I cleaned out my recently revamped tote that holds the my key leather working tools. It was good to see the bottom of the box again and pull out the non-essential items. The less used items have their own canvas tote bag of similar proportions.
The shoemaker’s tote is essentially done and I had the chance to get a couple photos over lunch. I will be adding more leather pocketing to hold tools but wanted to wait until I knew where things should be.
This is the inside of the side panel. The tools that I know for certain need to be handy, not rolling around on the bottom of the box.
Test fitting a couple tools. The strap was cut 1 1/4″ wide and is not as long as it should be. I am using carpet tacks as I had some laying around. Note that the inside has been given a coat of boiled linseed oil prior to placing the leather.
And the other side.
If you didn’t see the previous post, this is the plan photo.
Final dimensions are 14 5/8″ long, 9 1/2″ wide, 10 3/4″ tall. I wanted to be able to comfortably fit a twelve inch ruler in the bottom.
