Due to the interior dust seal, the chest is remarkably sturdy despite its thin sides and lightweight construction.
The shooting board on the lid turned out pretty well. It is not massive but consists merely of a few strips placed an equal distance apart.
Since I don't plan on building any large pieces of furniture, the size is OK.
I haven't had the time to make a nice tool roll for the chisels and the plane irons, but again the idea was to get some tools to the sea, I can always make the tool roll later.
Regarding the dilemma of whether to bring a rabbet plane or a plow plane, I settled for a grooving plane which fitted just perfect in the chest. It is a Stanley No 248 that Brian Eve gave to me. I haven't tried it, but I am sure it will be perfect for the sea chest.
I will have to find some wood on board for making a project. A pallet wood build is always a nice start.
The tool list has ended as follows:
Small brush for glue.
A small jar of glue (not in the picture)
Oil stone for honing
Small brass screws
Small headless brads
Small brass nails
Brass hinges (small)
The low tech closing mechanism.
Tools neatly stored in the chest.
The shooting board and one of the Roubo dye test pieces.
