Not having any Xmas office parties to go to in my retirement I managed to keep myself occupied in the workshop over the last seven days. I was having trouble with my waste offcuts box overflowing so decided to thin the stock down making the following.

Two boxes completed, and a third box awaiting to be cut apart. The box with partitions is going to be used to put a large quantity of screws I inherited many years ago from my father in law, (he never through anything away) the small box holds my diamond sharpening plates (cheapoes) and honing guide together with a piece of timber used as a former to set the angles required by distance (namely 1 1/4" * 1 1/2") the third box (largest) will hold the cardboard carton screw boxes that I have been acquiring myself over the last three years.





Two days left until the holidays, what can I do next :) :x :)

I hope you don't mind but it always make me smile to hear you retired folk talk about the holidays. What do retired people do in the holidays? - go to work? :lol: :lol:

You are absolutely right, Andy - for us retired folk it's just one long, permanent holiday. :wink: But, then, how come we always seem to be so busy that there would just not be time to go to work anyway? :roll: :? :lol:

Happy Christmas, :ho2 :ho2 :deer :deer

The box lid has now been separated using the tablesaw & a high fence, also dowels have been put across mitred corners. The reason for dowels is because the dozen or so boxes of screws has considerable weight and reinforcement of corners I thought would be desirable.

Another thread has been added shewing home made catch to hold lid down.
