This is number three in my tool tote series. Probably not the last. They are so handy and good practice for those jointing skills.

This one is for Daniel, my boy. SWMBO says it is probably too nice for him but I made it for him and his it will be. I am working on a mallet to go with it.

The box has Kwila sides and the end pieces are pine. All of it is reclaimed timber except the handle. I think it came up nice and the finger joint detail shows up nicely.

More to come.

If I ever get my shop built, I’m sure I’ll be making several of these.

Very solid and sturdy tote. Your son will keep it for a long, long time. My grown daughter still prizes hers, even though it’s not as purty as yours.

Doug,
Did you cut the finger joints by hand or did you use a machine? Either way they look great, just curious about your technique.
