I made this tool tray for my son-in-law’s birthday. The red oak was leftover from our house remodeling project three years ago. The design was inspired by both Jim Tolpin’s book, The Toolbox Book and a photo of a toolbox from Mate’s book The World’s Best Sailboats. The dimensions use the “Golden Rectangle of Design.” The length is 18” and the width is 11 1/4”. The corners are counterbored screws with teak plugs. The screwdriver ledge is made so that it can removed (notice the brass screws and finishing washers) and customized or replaced in the future. The finish is Minwax Wiping Poly.
