Anyone who has seen his work will tell you that Toolmonger reader Txinkman has some great toolbox restorations. It seems this little cube is no exception. Again we turn green as Txinkman describes in his typical humble way his latest project.
Mostly a clean up job. Glued down loose letherette, polished metal, refinished the drawers, and cleaned paint and residue from the cover. Then redyed it and gave it a couple of hits of black shoe polish.
Sure, sure, just a little nip and tuck, a bit of spit and polish and voilá — a perfect, new-looking toolbox. Don’t let him fool you; normally more than a few hours go into a project like this, and the great ones always make it look easy. In any case, it turned out great, as we might expect.
