It’s no secret that “Mythbusters” is one of my favorite shows. I’ve probably seen each episode, other than the really gross one with the earwax candle, five times. And I’m very fond of ruining party conversations with “Well, actually, the Mythbusters tested that and…”. Damn me and my science.
One of the recurring themes on the show is the “What the Hell are We Doing?” moment, where one of the hosts realizes how absurd a turn the experiment has taken. I had one of those moments yesterday. Having just finished the saw till for the new chest, I realized, all at once, that it’s stupid to make this a tool chest.
It’s not the right size for my tools and I already bought lumber for an anarchist’s tool chest clone. But I glued in the saw till anyway, because I couldn’t help myself.
But I came to my senses after two lower runners and a saw till. Blanket chest, it is. At least I can skip the frame and panel lid (or at least the dust seal).
Trust your instincts, folks.
