Toolbox No. 4 : Bicycle Tools

I was just about to sell my bike tools when I rediscovered bicycling.  To celebrate I cleaned off my tools and gave them a new home.

Each of my toolboxes has started from a central idea.  This one was to provide customized storage for the specialized, skinny, Park tools.  To this end, the lower tool drawer has 1/8th" slats that these tools nest between

Some features of interest.  I have a couple of 1/4" socket sets, but I could never for the life of me imagine what one would use a 4mm socket for.  Now I know; they make great drawer pulls.

An old handlebar was used for the handle.

The visible wood is maple, but pine, fir and plywood were also used.   What ever scrap was around.  The upper tray dividers are of cedar.
