Adam Savage’s New Leatherworking Box!

Adam shares his latest shop upgrade and build: a leatherworking station and storage box for all his leather-related tools! This beautiful wooden box was made in the process of working on his Star-Lord costume belt, and replaces a previous acrylic toolbox. Adam guides us through this toolbox’s form factor and its influences.

  1. I wish Adam would do more show and tells about stuff that he’s already built away from the camera. I’d love to see him open up his R2-D2 and talk about that one. Hint hint. 😉

  2. Since Adam has a love of boxes and a love of props, I would love to see him build Peter Vincent’s Vampire Hunter box from the 1985 movie Fright Night.

  3. OKay, I did as instructed and paused at the end to go look up Studley Tool box and my jaw dropped. How have i never seen this??? That is a thing of beauty. “A Place for everything and everything in its place!!! Wow. Thank you for putting that in my brain. Its a work of art. Adam Your Leather working kit is inspiring me to new levels of organizing my work space. Thank you for this amazing video. Funny I was doing a Star lord Costume and it was because of the Boot covers and belt that i went to Tandy and started amassing leather working tools. LOve it .

  4. Adam,

    This video rocks! I enjoy watching you make boxes and cases. I just had a quick comment. My uncle Wayne Jueschke makes superb leatherworking tools and has been making them for over thirty years. If you would like to expand your tool inventory let me know and I can send you his contact information. Take care and keep up the great work.

  5. This was inspiring. Long time lurker and Youtube page viewer. Soon I’ll be subscribing and engaging with premium content because I have been receiving a LOT of value from watching your Tested videos with my sons and have brought a lot of the design thinking into the classroom in which I teach.

    I’ve started building a similar tookbox to house all my little fiddly specialty indoor crafting tools. I’m a tinkerer full of enthusiasm and ADD. My wife tolerates the clutter and the projects that creep into the living space from the workshop out in the back yard, but seeing this leather working toolbox inspired me to build something that solves a lot of the problems I’ve had–mainly not having a home for odd-ball, one-off tools or a way to tuck it away when guests come over.

    Thank you for the motivation. I watched the video yesterday, and built the box out of half-inch ply today. Now it’s time to lay out where the tools go. I’ll share pictures here when I finish!

    THANK YOU!
