I made this tool box to hang below my Hanging tool cabinet. The carcass and drawers are Pine, the drawer fronts are reclaimed Douglas Fir from a neighbors old back door. I loved the grain and had to use it.
The hardware is home made from steel rod and cotter pins. I used three sizes of black iron pipe to make the rings by bending and hammering the rod to shape, and a blow torch and used motor oil to give me the hand forged finish I was looking for.
This was my second projects using dovetails, i figured I’d get some practice making things for the shop before I used them on anything nicer.
I finished the carcass with shellac and the drawer fronts with wipe on poly.
