Japanese tool box / chisel box.
A little tsūrubokkusu (I think!)
So after a few days in Paris smelling no wood, but looking a lot on the web, making research for my grease box story (and resting due to my not always funny health), I had to see some shavings, and get the smell of fresh cut wood back in my nose!
Yes, I better take care before I become a retired academic, with all in the words, and nothing in the hand!
Some old trash from the street – a little pallet and a wooden fruit box, was the starting point (fifth picture). So why not travel to Japan. Hand saw, hand planes, hammer, nails, glue is what you need on the side.
Last picture shows that I’m back on the table after, notice what’s on the laptop…
I took photos on the way, so I will update with a blog at some point.
Here is a super link if think of making something this style, or the traditional Japanese tool box:

I hope it could be to inspiration, it was quick and fun to do,
