Here's what it looked like when I picked it up.  And the renovation phase.

Vintage (30+ years-old) top and lower boxes finished.  Saved them from the scrap heap.

Dave, these are sweet...I have been wanting to get a few of those for my stuff, just couldn't swing the money for new ones...think I am going to have to start looking at garage and estate sales or crawling around barns :)
None of them suck, they just haven't found what the kid is good at yet.

And while I already have a few tool boxes, this combo box was priced right at the Home Depot.  Got my van, my ramp, wheeled it into the van and took it home.  They'd dropped the price $100 and priced better than the internet.

DP, what do you do with all these boxes once you restore them?

Call me crazy but I put tools in them.

Don't you eventually get too many of them?

When you have too many tools, you need too many boxes.  ;)

Chris, also keep in mind that some of my boxes are in my garage in Cary.  But our house at the beach also has a garage, so I've got tools (and boxes) down there.  I'm a tool and household projects kind of guy.  Turn a lamp into a batting cage, or glue two cereal bowls together to make a home security system....that sort of thing.  Plus, I do the maintenance on my bikes and trucks.  I enjoy taking things apart, trying to understand how they work, and then reassemble them.  That approach has helped me a lot in terms of coaching football.

Dave, it would be a really bad idea to disassemble your players...just saying... :P

Chris, agreed.  :D  But remember, I like to build things (football program, weight room, CAL).
