I finally finished a tool chest that was for my 15 year old grandson’s birthday. The plans were from Fine Woodworking Magazine. The panel in the top and the drawer fronts are mahogany and the rest is butternut. The dimensions are approximately 24” W x 13” D x 13” H.
It was some what of a challenge. Butternut is very light and difficult to work with. It splinters and chips easily, making the through mortises and the dovetails difficult.
My grandson likes it, but I don’t know if it will ever be used as a toolbox.
