Default Toolbox Tray Replacement

So one morning I opened my toolbox and noticed the plastic tray that hold all my screw drivers and combo wrenches was cracked and hanging down. So I decided to start a new project in class, to give me something to do.

I had only hand plasma cut aluminum once before, and figured making a new tray that way would take too long with filing and sanding to look good. So I plugged in my tray frame into CAD and made it 2in wider than the tray that was in there and about 1/2in deeper. Then put a chamfer on the front of it to compensate for the lock and rod mechanism on the front of the toolbox on the inside. After I did that, I fully welded the whole inside and sanded it down. What do you guys think?

Before:





Middle point:







After:







What do you guys think?

And our hookah base busted, so I made a new one. Old school GLASS Crystal Srpings water jug. Holds 4 gallons of smoke!
