This toolbox was a Christmas gift for my Brother-in-law last year. The carcass is made of 1/2” baltic birch, veneered with walnut. I trimmed the edges of the plywood with solid walnut strips. I build the drawers out of solid maple. This was the second time building one of these. I built one for another brother-in-law a few years ago. That one was veneered with ebony. I prefer the walnut. I build this from plans from Woodsmith Magazine.

I’m not sure which issue. It was a few years ago. You can download the plans on woodsmithplans.com. Search for Heirloom Tool Chest.

Very nice straight lines design and smooth final ’’touches’’. You put together very well wooden pulls and metal handles.
