This is a Red Oak Toolbox I built. The dovetails were cut on the Leigh Jig. All tools are labeled so that you do not loose them (did I write that, loose tools at jobsites?)

Been a while since I’ve seen such a well designed tool box. When I was young, the old timers had these type custom boxes they carried. I made a partitioned one a while back, but nothing as cool as this. Very cool!!!!!!!!!!

Wonderful toolbox, since I am a extreme order guy, I love your organisation.(do you have a bad memory like me? since you put all those stickers – my X-wife laughed that I loved to use theses little stickers on my stuff also).Beautiful work, I’m impressed.

I like that much better than the 5 gallon bucket that I currently use. What is that on the ends of the box. It’s hard to tell in the pictures. Are those just handles?

Yes, Doc, those are handles on the end pinned in by a walnut 1/4 dowel. Also, of course the top has the full run opf the 1 1/2 inch red oak dowel.

Yes, Mafe, the memory is not that good, but the main reason for the labeling is when you take it to the jobsite you can easily see what is missing and go hunting for it before you leave. (unless it walked off-with help-) I do have a tendency to P-label everything, altho the blank tapes are expensive.
