The time had come last year for a better way to store some of my hand tools and I decided it was time to build a toolbox. After viewing so many different options, I decided to make a Japanese style box using a slide lock top in the fashion of Japanese woodworker Toshio Odate. I found an article that described the basic dimensions and process of building this toolbox with nails. I changed the dimensions based on the lumber I had available to me and glued and nailed all joints. I sanded the toolbox down and finished it with a Briwax Dark Oak paste wax to give the wood some color.
