The Family Handyman

This handy double-decker carryall is great for toting your fasteners and anchors to the jobsite. Build it from a quarter sheet of 3/4-in. plywood, 1/8-in. hardboard strips, glue, nails and a 1-1/4 in. dowel. Cut the pieces as shown; just keep in mind that it works best to cut the 3/8-in. deep slots for the hardboard dividers before you cut the sides away from the base. An average 1/8-in. kerf saw blade in your table saw works perfectly for cutting the 1/8-in. hardboard dividers. Be sure to cut the dado “key” slots (using multiple passes with your table saw) in the ends of the top tray to lock it to the tote tabs so you can carry it as a unit. Make these slots about 1/16 in. wider than the 3/4-in. x 3/8- in. tabs so you don’t have to struggle to lift the top tray off the bottom tray.
