I’m trying out a homemade design for a backpacking stove that combines a few of the best ideas I’ve seen with some solutions for their most common problems.
A friend gave me some pieces of synthetic leather from a couch that he threw out, and I turned it into a set of tool rollups (back in November 2013).
I got my first toolbox roughly 17 years ago, and it’s been a constant struggle to find the right mix of tools and the right container to store them. But for tools with everyday utility, I finally managed to come up with a flexible recipe for a tool container that satisfies me. A set of connected steel tubes keeps my tools vertical so that I don’t need to dig in the bag — each tool is easily visible and accessible.
