Project by NaplesWoody posted 05-22-2017 06:04 PM 2038 views 4 times favorited 14 comments Add to Favorites Watch

First real project from design to finish from rough sawn hardwood. Three hand cut dovetail drawers in a hand cut dovetailed carcass. The front frame and panel piece slides out and hinges down to keep the drawers in place while transporting. It locks via a half-mortised brass lock and features a CNC’ed engraving.

Thanks, Ivan. Built a garage shop over the past year to keep building. Mostly shop projects lately but I’m working on a gaming case now out of walnut and curly maple that I hope turns out well.

Dovetails look very well done. Design is very nice. And looks great too. Great job.

Nice design on the toolbox. The drawers make it very practical. Personalized makes it better.

Nice looking toolbox. I don’t believe it’s mahogany but a look alike.
