Projecting, tinkering, fiddle-farting around: whatcha building?

Started with converting the drawing into steel.

You instantly came to mind. . . .
That a good price! Not the Gray/Red Chevron boxes I'm collecting, but a nice stack! Probably has ball bearing slides too! The tools included could be a bonus, depending on what treasures are found!

On a side note, I missed out on three very desirable, and somewhat rare boxes: A 7 drawer + bay lower, and a (ultra rare) 12 drawer top/ 12 drawer lower stack. The first was in Joliet, IL, even though I offered to pay more and send a PayPal deposit, the seller wouldn't go for it. The latter was in Louisville, KY. It was a killer price, but it's almost 6 hours away. And I had a couple of commitments. I would have paid double the asking price for the 12/12 combo.

The search continues....

Scored this beauty on Marketplace:

59 piece Craftsman tap/die set (SAE). This has never been used. Still had the original paperwork inside it, which appeared to have been never looked at. Absolutely no evidence of use on any pieces. From the logo on the front, I'd date it somewhere in the late 70's to early 80's. The original foam 'cushion' must have deteriorated, and the seller had to rip it off to post a pic, leaving bits/pieces of black foam on everything. I scrubbed it all down, oiled the tap/die wrenches, and sprayed the individual taps/dies with WD40. Good to go!

I can't recall the number of times my old 59 piece Craftsman tap/die set has saved my bacon. This one is headed up to my lake house garage.

I have posted before about stuff I like to do with pallets and other reclaimed stuff.
Here is the latest. I am building a shelf to hold a reciever in the mancave.
The metal is all very old rusty fence posts from my property and the wood all scrap from various projects. The top and bottom shelf are from an old desk we refinished and put a new top on. That wood is in bad shape so am considering painting it with bedliner to cover up the s***ty veneer. Going to leave the pipe rusty and pitted. Thought about clear coating it but I do not think it is necessary.

The old iron was really hard to weld with the old flux core mig.

Haven't done much lately but here is the "chandelier" in our den. I originally had a string of miniature globes but changing them out was constant. Rope light for the win. This is an old A-spring mattress support that came from my great grandparent's house. I still have the cast iron frame too.
