I am constantly searching for long skinny tools in the sawdust . I thought I’d make myself a “toolbox.” I have been on an obsessive streak of decorating (i.e. negative space designs) . My hands can no longer grip slick items, so I decided to gussie-up my toolbox with this decoration, thus killing two birds with one stone. Now my files,rifflers, etc have a home & I don’t have to hunt for them anymore. Mahogany approx. 7×3 each row has 12 flats, in a bricklaid pattern to those above & below (no I do not own an ornamental lathe, nor a rose engine)

Very nice! How about a picture of it open? It’s waay to pretty to get saw dust on.

That’s some kind of beautiful! So, the tools stand on end, vertically?

barb: yes they are all very skinny ..many 1/4 in or 3/8 in diameter, and 5-6 inches long..they can hide very easily in a shop!

Now if you can only remember to put the tools back in there after each use or you will be searching again! ;-) Interesting texture!

Hey CG good to see you here at LJ’s..I wanted to test my ability to make this design & needed a box/tube for dental picks,chainsaw files, this box was born. I put a magnet in the base & it sticks to a metal shelf..I know where it is always!

Nice one Micelle. I usually find a lot of time is wasted looking for odd tools. Elegant solution.

I admire woodworkers that take the time to create such elegant and beautiful pieces just for the shop.
