I made this box at my job i work for a woodworking company as a finish sander, so i accumulate quite a bit of supplies. majority of my supplies is custom made sanding blocks and chisels. I made the box out of scrap wood from the shop its all maple except for the bottom of the box which is plexiglass. I used a radial arm saw to make rabbets for the joints and i epoxied the plexiglass to the bottom that also had a rabbet for the bottom to fit in. I liked the look of the knot so i left if as the front of the box. I sanded it and coasted it with Renaissance Wax and then buffed it out. The items in the box are my ear protection, a half inch chisel, a plane blade, a custom made metal sanding block, a variety of wooden custom made sanding blocks, a tape measure, a pencil, and a deck of playing cards. I made the box specifically to house my own supplies because coworkers always have a habit of grabbing what they need and never returning or dulling chisels.
