This was a week end fun project that came out of the scrap bin. Besides wanting to fill the space on the roll away, I needed more space for my toys. Wanted to try out sliding dovetails to put draw fronts together and found they were very quick and easy. Well this is how it turned out. Enjoy.

Fantastic tool box! Great use of scraps. How about some more pictures? Drawers open and joint shots?

Great addition to the roll away. All I have is the top box and need more space. My plan is to make the bottom half one of these days.

Keep up the great work.

I like it. The first real woodworking project for me was a toolbox.

Didn’t turn out the way I liked but it works and I learned along the way.
