This spring I built an adaptation of FW’s essential toolbox then found I didn’t have a place to put it in my shop. I then got on Sketchup and drew up plans for a bottom rollaway box. The carcase is red oak with handcut dovetails and mortise and tenons. The drawers are maple with bubinga fronts and machine cut dovetails. The carcase was finished with 2 coats of amber shellac then several coats of clear shellac, The drawers were finished with clear shellac. The drawers were cut slightly over size then hand fit.
I now have a place for the upper box in my shop.
The drawers are on maple runners finished with shellac and then waxed with paste wax. The fit on the bottom drawer is tight enough that I actually have some suction when opening it.
The dovetails and mortise and tenons are the best I have cut to date.
