the idea for this style of box is not my own . i found it on another website and i made my own version. i keep some of my tools at work and to keep them in some sort of order i worked out what i wanted in side and built it around the tools. also used some brass rod to ad strength..cut to about 40mm and glued into place. finshed with danish oil

Everyone with old tools should have a box like this.
Perhaps one day…

Iwill agree with mafe but take it one step further and say anyone with tools should have a tool tote like this. Fantastic workmanship and attention to form and function the danish oil gives it a soft feel.

What I like about your tool box is the compact size of it, which carries the selected tools that you want to carry. Also the handle’s form is appealing to the eye, and it looks like it would fit in the palm of the hand just right. I wonder what the inside looks like without the tools.

Very nice job on this. You have these subtle design additions that just make the piece. And who doesn’t want a tool box that is so nice you can keep it in the living room!

thank you all for the comments…. its uesd alot and its a good way to show students ow the joints are used. and it handy to show wood work can be easy….my own saying tends to be… if you can mark and cut a strait line you are half way there… the other half is knowing where to put that line…
