I needed something to get my planes and chisels off the bench and after seeing some of the boxes being posted began playing with SketchUp and came up with a few ideas. I liked the idea of the Japanese style lid, and added a modification of a leather-hinged cleat that locks the lid from sliding. Found a few suitable boards by scrounging in the scrap wood pile and planed them down to 1/2 inch stock. Not top quality workmanship but I got to spend a few evenings in the shop practicing some joinery. Thanks to LJ’s Mafe and ChrisinOttawa for the inspiration.
