Western Red Cedar case. White Ash drawers. Oak handles. Cocobolo, purple heart and white ash laminated knobs. 12×18x12”. I called it Tool box #1 because I plan to make a bigger one some day to replace it as this one is already full. I installed rare earth magnets in the back of the drawers (you can’t see them in the photo) that keep it shut and “pull” it in when you get to the last inch or so of closure.

I’d be concerned that magnets strong enough to pull the drawer shut would also pull on any tools inside.

They do actually derek. I can place a straightedge against the back inside of the drawer and it will stay there. It falls right down when I tip it forward so it’s not a big deal. Here’s a picture of the mounting method. They are super glued in place , works great. I had to experiment with how many to use as this drawer was heavier than the others and I usually put larger stuff in it, so it has three mags.
