I needed to make one more tool tray, this one for my son. I went to the same basic design that I had used on 3 previous trays. This one was a little different though. The overall dimensions remain the same. However, on this version, I made my first through-dovetails, and my first wooden threads. The dovetails were cut with a Peachtree Jig and the threads were made with a Beall Wood Threader. I had never used either of these jigs before even though they had been sitting on the shelf for years. The sides are southern yellow pine, planed to 5/8” thickness to reduce weight. The handle is maple. The nuts were cut from some oak flooring. The wood plugs, seen on the ends for contrast are teak, which I cut on the drill press. The bottom is a piece of teak & holly 3/8 plywood that I repurposed for this project. As this is “job box” it may very well be left unfinished.
