Small Tool Box For Pick-Up Truck Bed



I built this to carry small tools or stuff I buy at the store to protect the items from the rain. It is small but I wanted to be able to take it out of the truck in case I needed to carry large items. I did not want a hinged cover because on a nice sunny day I could carry taller items such as groceries,etc. Also if I have a small job to do for someone I can throw the tools in this box rather than letting them slide all over the truck bed loose.

Jenny asks…

Why didn’t Jesus shave his beard?

He was a carpenter. He’s experienced with tools.

Dusty answers:

“You shall not round off the hair on your temples or mar the edges of your beard.”

Mary asks…

Why didn’t Jesus shave his beard?

He was a carpenter. He’s experienced with tools.

Dusty answers:

Ever try to shave with a saw? Biblical people wore beards because razors were virtually non-existent.

Ruth asks…

Problem at work… what do I do?

I need advice on how to go about an issue at work. I am in a position that requires me to enforce policies on purchasing and obtaining equipment for a college; however, whenever I see somebody violating these policies and try to enforce them, my manager tells me to let it slide and we’ll get them next time. This has been happening at least once a week for the past 10 months. Not only do I feel that there is something odd about that, but it removes my incentive to work. Two weeks ago we lost all power, including to our security cameras. Conveniently, all the tools of two employees (a carpenter and a HVAC tech) came up missing, and they have ordered about two thousand dollars worth of tools to replace them. I suggested that they investigate what happened with those tools, but I was told that we can’t do that. There have also been numerous blatant violations, and whenever I went to report the incidents, my management told me they just didn’t know better, and to not worry about it. I know that they know better, considering I’ve gone over the policy multiple times with these people. When I moved up the chain of command, they just changed the policies. When I try to enforce these, the same excuses are given. So I feel as though I have no purpose at my job, and that every time I attempt to do my job, I am scolded. So anybody have any advice on what to do?

Dusty answers:

You have a few options.

1. Look the other way, and become like your co-workers. Be prepared to take the fall. You’re being set up.

2. Stand up for what you believe is the right thing to do, by bringing it to the attention of the President of the University

3. Find another job.

Sandy asks…

is 5000 dollars enough to buy a fixer upper house?

Well i live in winnipeg canada and theres houses here that sell around 30,000-50,000 that are fixer uppers and a married couple that are good friends of mine gave me alot of advice on real estate, cause i’ve read abit books on real estate. They told me once i have mininum down payment (2000 dollars) to get a mortgage and buy a fixer upper. The husband is a good carpenter and he’ll take a look at a house and help me with tools and what not. I’m 20. Is 5000 enough? Is it wise? I mean a 25 year mortgage of 50,000 dollars is alot cheaper then renting an apartment, i have carpentry experience (i grew up helping my dad fix his houses)

Dusty answers:

Depends on the condition – it might not pass an occupancy permit inspection, meaning you would have to get everything fixed that failed BEFORE you would even be allowed to live there and that could cost a lot of money – mortgage company may also not approve a loan if the house is not immediately livable

Dusty answers:

The most important thing to do is express interest in their company. Try to have a little background info about them as well, that shows them you had enough interest to do a little research. Also try to have about 2 or 3 questions about them. But don’t mention money. Use short to the point answers, don’t pontificate. Be positive, interviewers really respond to that, it shows what kind of attitude you will bring to the position they are interviewing for. If they ask about previous work experience or why you left a previous job don’;t tell them you hated it there, say something like you were ready to look for a new challenge or something that will put a positive spin on it, don’t bad mouth previous employers,that’s bad juju no matter how much you hated them or the job. Also make good eye contact when you shake the interviewers hand at the beginning and end of the interview. Don’t fidget keep your composure. Remember these people interviewing you don’t know ther real you, and all they have to base their decision is is what you present them with at the interview. Good luck.

George asks…

Justice Or No Justice??? Everyone Please look. THX

Here’s what Happened.
For about 2 days now there has been some people ( A Carpentry Company ) working next door somewhere on the roof.. In order for them to work they need our permission to get into our property. So we give them permission to work in a certain Space and nowhere else. First at they have all these heavy tools on the lawn!!! and at the end of day one they “mistakenly” take a 20 ft. ladder it would of been gone if my father didn’t notice. On day two they get into our garden taking our tomatoes without any permission ( they were caught with a bag full by my mom. ) and leaving behind some plants crushed ending up in a huge argument with my mom the supervisor of the company! ( My father wasn’t home ). Note** Their supervisor sent them To take the tomatoes!

So my Question is this a situation to be held in court for their abusement to our property they had no right to do these things.
Yes but there work is done since they could not take the ladder I think they must of thought that they have had to leave with something.
Any more suggestions??

Dusty answers:

They committed theft when they took the tomatoes without permission. If the incident is over, they are gone and not coming back, then it looks like a lesson learned. Theft charges over a few tomatoes are not worth it, check to make sure nothing else was taken.

Paul asks…

What kind of tool should I use?

I am trying to make this nail go into the piece of wood but I can’t figure out how to do it. I tried a screwdriver and that was shit and the shovel wasn’t that great either. I am thinking about a measuring tape?? Lol and they say Jesus is a carpenter.

Dusty answers:

Try to borrow a black powder rifle, load it with about 200 grains of fff, and then the nail, pack it tightly with cotton, and aim.

Mark K: your idea is right except you failed to tell him to be sure and get a “metric” wrench, a necessity in this case.

Is the Ryobi Blue electric 750w planer any good.?

I’m a carpenter and just had some of my power tools nicked.I had the 4mm dewalt before but can’t be laying out £200.00 out for a new one. The Ryobi is 750w which is powerful and only £75 quid. Any ideas? And it must be 110v.

Dusty answers:

I dont use a planer, but I have a number of Ryobi power tools (drills, angle grinder, jig saw etc) and have found all of them to be O/K and good value for money.

Your Questions About Carpenter Tools



Mark asks…

Should I have hired a carpenter to install interior doors?

I hired a handyman to install five interior doors in existing door frames. The old doors were no longer available. These are just hollow, primed six-panel pressed woodgrain doors from HD.

The doors needed to be trimmed for width and length. Although he said he had a power planer, it looks like he used it for the side of just one door – that one was trimmed evenly. All the other trimming must have been done with his oscillating multitool. Those doors show saw marks/gouges and the cuts are uneven – if I hold a straightedge along the cuts, there are 1/16 to 1/8 and even 1/4 inch gaps; one door bottom looks concave, another looks convex, another is just wavy. I think enough material may have been removed that there isn’t room left to fix them, if that’s even possible.

I loaned him my router and jig to mortise the hinges. For two doors, the bottom hinge mortise didn’t line up with the existing mortise in the door frame, so he chiseled one door frame mortise to make it longer, the other both longer and wider.

I trusted him to have the tools and skills to do the work when he accepted the job. I didn’t look over his shoulder every minute. I didn’t see these problems until I set up one of the doors for what I thought would be light sanding, then painting.

What do you think I should do? I can’t do a lot of fixing myself due to a sore shoulder. To me, it looks like the doors are ruined. How would one fix a wavy, gouged cut?

Was it too much to expect a handyman to trim a door evenly, and leave it ready for light sanding and paint?

Dusty answers:

It is not too much to expect. He should have done a better job. Maybe you could get some kind of metal edge trim to cover the errors at the bottom edge.

When trimming doors, which are usually covered with a veneer that splinters easily, you should use a saw guide, which is like a rip fence that you clamp across the face of the door and use that to guide the saw. In addition, once you know where the saw kerf will land, you score the face of the door just ABOVE the cut using a sharp utility knife, such that as the saw pulls up the wood fibers, they break at the cut, and not above it. Just a light score ~1/32″ is adequate. That produces a very clean edge that can be easily stained if any light colored wood shows between the score and the cut. Typically 1/16 th of an inch or less, depending on the skills and the accuracy of the saw, etc.

What’s the best tool to cut round corners or semi circles with wood?

I’m new to this carpentering thing but I’m gonna give it a shot. My main concern is cutting round or circular end or edges. I heard of a jigsaw knife but is there something better? Also do you just paint wood or do you have to put a finish on it first? All comments will help thanks everyone.

Dusty answers:

Not entirely sure what you are asking ,

to round the square corners of a flat piece of wood looking down at it – jig saw, or sander

the actual edge top and bottom -router or sander

paint wood indoors or outdoors good practice to prime first then paint, exterior more important to prime, indoors not so much, priming helps help keep no. Of coats down, Kilz primer or similar , water based

Dusty answers:

1. D – “whomever” should be “whoever”, because it’s a subjective use.
2. A – there should be a period after “everyone”, although I would prefer to insert the word “but” to make it a compound sentence.
3. D – it should be “has asked”
4. A – “everyone” is singular, but “their” is plural. It should be “his or her” (if the class is mixed). However, “their” has become the common way of expressing this in everyday conversation.
5. A – “starting” is a gerund, “to start” is an infinitive. I would change the infinitive to the gerund form of the verb.

Charles asks…

Any help anyone can give me on staining wood will be greatly appreciated….?

…I recently had new windows installed
and the finished carpentry around the windows is beautiful. Now I have to stain it. I am going today to get the stain matched to some of the existing stained wood. What do I need for tools? How do I minimize drip? How many coats do I need to apply? Do I need a final coat of Poly? Whatever you tell me will help! Thank you in advance!!

Dusty answers:

Oil-based stains seem to go on more evenly. They smell and must be applied with good ventilation. Wear heavy rubber gloves and a respirator if you can’t have the windows open. The water-based stains generally dry unevenly when I have tried to use them. I avoid any finish (varnish) that has the stain in it.

Assuming the wood is sanded evenly and ready for finishing, I wipe the wood with a clean, lint free cloth to remove any dust. I test the stain on a scrap piece of the same wood that I am going to finish. Apply the stain with a clean lint free cloth. Coat a portion of the job that can be wiped down in a couple of minutes. After the stain is wiped on, go back to the beginning using a clean cloth and carefully wipe the excess stain from the wood. Continue your job by staining a new area and wiping it with a clean cloth until you have finished the job. Be careful to not overlap your stain application as that will give you different tones where you have applied two coats. Oil-based stain does not cure as quickly as water-based stains; so you can apply stain to a larger area before you start wiping the excess off. With oil-based stain, you might be able to apply the stain to an entire window before wiping the excess. Start with a smaller area first–just to make sure. The tone of the stain will be proportional to the time you leave it on the wood before wiping off the excess. Therefore, if you want a more intense color, leave the stain on a little longer. You want to try and adjust your work speed so the stain is on the wood about the same amount of time for all parts of the job. If you get done and it is too light, you can always apply a second coat of stain. Read the instructions on the can. Let the finished stain set the length of time specified on the can before applying any finish. Usually overnight is long enough.

Make sure the surfaces are dust free and apply your finish. You can use polyurethane as a water-based or oil-based varnish. I prefer to use an oil-based varnish for at least the first coat. I use Minwax/Helmsman where the work will be exposed to sunlight. The Helmsman polyurethane has a UV inhibitor in it. I thin the first coat with mineral spirits (paint thinner) about 2 parts varnish to 1 part thinner. That makes the first coat soak into the wood more. I like the looks of the satin finish as opposed to the gloss finish. After the first coat has cured thoroughly, I wipe it gently with 0000 steel wool–that is extra fine steel wool. You have to be careful not to rub the edges harder than the flat surface as that will remove the finish and the stain–not a good idea. By wiping the surface with the steel wool, you will remove any dust or raised grain from the application of the first coat of varnish. Wipe the smooth surfaces with a clean lint free cloth. Apply a second and maybe even a third coat of varnish. You can brush it on, or I prefer to use a clean cloth and wipe it on in two light coats. When you are done with the last coat of varnish, wait for a couple of days and wipe the whole job down with 0000 steel wool and past wax. Let the wax harden and wipe it down with a clean cloth. That will put a nice even finish on the wood. If you have done a good job of keeping the dust off your varnish, the last step with the steel wool and the paste wax is optional.

A finish applied like this will last many years if kept clean and dry.
