Walnut, Curly Ash, Sycamore
24” L x 12 H x 11 W
I am preparing to take a Windsor Chair class with Mike Dunbar in October. I am going to have to take some of my woodworking tools with me so I decided to use the opportunity to make a tool box to carry them.
I used scrap Walnut, dovetailed, for the bottom and two ends. The sides are spectacular Curly Ash I’ve had for a few years so I decided to finally use some. (Definitely not scrap) Screwed and plugged to the ends. Finally the handle is a scrap of quartersawn Sycamore. Tenon and wedged. It is subtle in the pics but I carved out a grip in the center that conforms to my right hand. The rest of the handle was sort of carved out on the fly. I did not want to but to much effort into it because I do want to use it but it is a little better than some nailed up Pine boards.
