Nice.

Very nice. What are the hooks you used for the totes? Are they available in brass?

I came across some utility hooks on Amazon: not sure if they can be found in brass, but here is link to Amazon page:

Amazon Utility Hooks

I lined the hooks with PSA-backed felt to protect the handles. That Amazon link is here:

That looks great!

Now I just have to ask: which of the saws did you use to cut those dovetails?

Ha; good question. For the tails, I prefer a heavier plate thickness, so I used the Bad Axe Stilletto (not in the display case, because its too long) or the standard LN saw (I think it may have been the one with the nice rosewood handle). For the pins, I prefer the 2 Lawyers Ultimate DT saw, or the LN thin plate with the apple handle (the apple handle makes all the difference).

Which do you prefer, and why?

Have you sharpened any?
