Sometimes I wait until the very last moment to actually make something I really need. In this case its my new nail caddy. I have been storing my cut nails in their boxes or the little baggies they come in for quite a while now. I don't know about you, but digging for nails is not something I like doing, neither is putting them back in baggies or boxes all the time.
With this new nail caddy the nails I use the most can be at the ready. Best part is, I can take out what I need and I don't have anything to put back. Specially when working on a project that requires the use of a few different size nails. Now I can just grab my nail caddy and go to work.
I built this nail caddy out of some Redwood that I have had for a while. Reclaimed from an old barn. The piece I got was about 5 feet long and 12"by 12". So, after resawing I have quite a bit for several projects. And if you are curious about the wood, I know it was originally cut from what is now a National Park. I can always find really old Sequoia Redwood out where I live. It lasts forever and as old buildings around me come down I am always on the lookout for the old stuff.
I hope you like the video and if you haven't subscribed to me on YouTube yet, please do. I have many new videos coming out soon and some neat projects coming up.
