This box is based on a Japanese design that I upgraded the carcase joints a bit on. The joinery is more the “quick and dirty” side than the fine side, so I left some blowout here and there.
Here is a description of the pictures:
1. The Box on my tool chest
2. A detail of the joinery
3. Lid detail
4. What it’s loaded with right now
5. Yep, it’s made of < 1/2” stock and you can stand on it
6. Detail of the underside of the handle
This was a quick and very fun project that has paid handsome dividends already. Right now I am using it to store tools I had on the wall while I insulate that wall…it’s also been a stepping stool in that same project.
Here is my favorite picture while I built this. This is while I was securing the ship-lapped base.
