Vintage, huh....

I dont think of myself as old and I have the same box in my garage. Bought it new in 197something. Guess that is vintage.

Looks great by the way

I had a hard time calling that vintage .. maybe my 1957 craftsman is older than I think?

It must have taken forever to paint each of those drawers. Very cool!

I have a Kennedy Tool Box that was my father's last box at work before he passed. It been disassembled for a couple years and I have root beer brown candy paint and a silver flake base to go down as a base. I just need to find some time to tackle the project.

Awesome box!!!
