A Toolbox made from Red Oak for my nephew. The box dimensions are 25×12 x 12 inches.
The box contains two lift out trays and two covered small parts boxes. The lids for these boxes are Spalted Maple. The two larger trays have mitered corners secured with hard Maple splines. There are also three stationary drawers with brass pulls.
The corners fasteners are covered with brass plugs, which are friction fitted.
The large top tray is a piston fit, that drifts downward (slowly) under it’s own weight as the air is expelled.
The finish is seven very thin applications of hand rubbed Super Blond Shellac.
In about a month my nephew can improve the finish by rubbing the box with a crumpled brown paper bag.
