My Creative Workspace Chests

I finally finished off the lower toolbox to my creative workspace, which concludes my settling in to my workshop after about 18 months. It is resting now. A place for everything and everything in its place is a maxim I have learned the value of. I want to encourage any young woodworkers to focus as much on fashioning the creative workspace as they do on projects. It’s an ideal that grows with you and evolves according to your work. Customising need not occur all at once, in fact its better to work with it and arrange it according to you and others around you, machinery and equipment and so on. Everything has its place in your space so simply let it evolve in an unfolding process of delineation as you create partitions, boxes, special compartments for protection, easy access, safety and you define who you are through the space you live and work in.

I needed somewhere for my long paring chisels. They take a long length and I have had them rolling around for a while now.

The drawers are filling nicely and taking all of the loose odds and sods I have had in displaced pockets around my bench. Soooo nice to have a home for them at last.
