so into this box thing...

some of you might be a little bit curious about shinya's obsession with those tool boxes. what does he do with them? is he selling them? where does he store them etc. these are just a part of his collections but here they are!

箱箱キングの木村氏に、箱を売っているのですか?どこに仕舞っているのですか?マトリョーシカみたいに大きな箱の中に小さな箱を全部入れたりできるのですか?などの問い合わせがたまにきます。箱を売るビジネスで御殿が建つはずもなく、箱がマトリョーシカみたいだったら使えないし、箱は仕舞うものではなく、何かを箱に仕舞うものですよ!ということで使いっぷりをほんの少しだけ。

 small equipments like solder or glue gun are stored here.

小さい道具、はんだとかグルーガンとかが入っている箱。



 some parts are stored in the boxes on the top.

パーツが入った箱。


on the right, this is the bottom of the double-decker that shinya got recently.

右側、これはこの間の二階建ての箱の下の方。

this is the top part of the double-decker...looks like he's using it as a table.

そして上。テーブルになっちゃってるけど・・・そしてやけに赤いこの写真。





 parts for GS1000

 dutsun parts

 and of course, this.
he basically uses most of his boxes.

 そして、これ!基本使ってるみたいですね、箱コレクション。
ま、まだまだあるんだけどねー。

Pretty much what I thought . When you're a builder you've got lots of tools and even more parts needing a proper home where you can find them when needed.

FYI ; I got to finally see Shinya's M/C's this morning at the KC Art of the Chopper show . Photographs don't do them justice . I really enjoyed explaining to the other attendees who Shinya is , some of his philosophy and the fact that his M/C's are rideable . Seems I was the only one this morning familiar with Shinya , so for a little while I was volunteer Docent .

What a way to start the weekend !

Really could of used a Chabott T shirt though you know :o(

:o)

The mystery of the toolbox. Yes very difficult to define indeed.
I must confess that I am toolbox addict and probably should check myself into toolbox rehab.
I think the toolbox eternally represents the unknown. Of course the question, "What's inside?" Or even if the box is empty, what was inside?
Also any and every used toolbox is a time machine. What tools did it hold? What kind of work did it do? What about the previous owner or owners? There is an energy, a soul if you will in every old toolbox.

Shinya -
The long Kennedy Carpenter box that you have. On either end on the top of the box, there is a small rectangular stamp slot. If you knock out the stamp you can slide a 24 inch carpenters framing square into the box. Hold the square parallel with the box lid. Next take the short side of the square and slide it through the slot. Once the tongue is slid all the way in, let the square pivot 90degrees so the long side can drop down into the box. Now you can close the lid and transport your square.
