After moving my shop to a semi-public space, I needed a new way to store my hand tools. Mainly when I’m out of the shop I needed to keep them out of immediate view but 1) wanted to keep them easily accessable and 2) movable to either my car or a locked room. About the same time I was having to move my shop, I stumbled upon some pictures of Japanese toolboxes. I fell in love with the form and wanted to try making one.
The current shop temperature is too cool to put a finish on the box, so I have started using it already. We’ll see if it gets a finish at all.
Poplar, screws and nails. Hide glue.
Bottom compartment divided for saws and planes.
Sliding till rides above the saws, etc.
