Grab-it-and-go glue tote

Don't let your glue bottles get scattered around your shop. Store them in this easy-to-make mobile home for easy transport.

If your shop gets too cold to store glue safely during the winter, this handy glue tote allows you to haul a half-dozen bottles between the shop and the house with one hand. You can build this project with the box joints shown in the photograph or rabbet the corners. If you choose the box-joint option, you'll need to change the length of the bottom (D) to 12" and the length of the handle (F) to 13 3/8". For the two sides and two handles of the box, download the patterns below, available in PDF format*.
