It may not be much to look at for most people but this box holds seven of my most treasured possessions. . . my chisels. ;) Since my current woodworking opportunities are almost entirely limited to hand tools, I decided to practice some box joints while building a container to keep my favorite set of Ashley Iles chisels protected. I will admit that I did cheat and purchase pre-surfaced poplar but all the other cuts, including the grooves, were by hand. The box is solid poplar with a small cherry nob on the lib. The dimensions are approximately 11 X 10 X 2.5”.
While I especially enjoy making those “pretty” projects that visually appeal to everyone, I would none-the-less recommend that WWs should build a core project like this occasionally. It really reacquaints you with wood and the tools you use.
