Hi all. After seeing some great tool boxes here, I decided I needed to make one. I’m just starting out with woodworking (lots of DIY, a deck etc) and this is my second project. Here are the details on this tool box.
It’s made of 1×8 Poplar with a plywood base. The handle is hardwood dowel from the big box store.
The ends are dovetailed using a Craftex jig and router. The joints turned out tight once the jig was setup correctly which took a fair bit of tweaking.
The base is in a dado as is the handle. No metal fasteners.
The finish is just one coat of boiled linseed oil.
