Once again reader Jeffrey Immer takes basic materials to the extreme with his newest toolbox. From a guy who builds bridges and buildings out of 2×4’s and ply, a big-ass toolbox must have been an afternoon project.
officially dubbed the Giant tool box of Awesomeness, or GTBA for short, my tools were being removed from all there hiding places so I made this to lock them, it has to moved by forklift and I estimate it to weigh in around 2500-3000 pounds with everything in it empty it was not too heavy. it is made with 5/8 ply and 2×8’s cut down to 2x4s and 2x2s and lots of screws, took me about a day to build. 8’x4’x 42″ tall
I wouldn’t have thought of making a one-ton toolbox before seeing this, but I can definitely see the appeal. Jeff wins the “my toolbox is bigger than yours” contest – hands down.
