My 2 year old grandson and I made this rustic toolbox for my wife, his Nana, for Christmas. She’s not the type to express what she wants (she’s a giver) so I had to spy on her pinterest to figure it out. It’s made from reclaimed oak from an old pallet. The oak was nearly rock hard, so it’s good that it was supposed to be rustic, and I didn’t need to plane it or square it up. The sides and handle are simply glued and pegged in. There is no finish on the tool box – it sit for years out in the sun and rain, so I figure it’s done what it’s going to do. The most important thing is that she loves it, and even more so since two those little hands helped drive those pegs in.
