This is my first semi-major project. It is a toolbox for my woodworking handtools. Its made from poplar. The design is from adapted from the book “Wood Work”. Since its completion I have added an upper tray 4” deep with dividers.

That is one beautiful tool box. Crisp and clean. The grain pattern on the top is great too. Love it and thanks for sharing this gem with us.

I like the design especially the lid. I have always wanted to try this lid design on my chests, but I am not sure how to do it. Overall a very nice chest with nice details on the hinges and the slats of the base. I look forward to see your future projects.

Very Nice, poplar can be most attractive if selection is right, and you obviously did good with that!
Nice box joints as well, thanks for the idea.

A classic design with clean lines. I like your wood selection for the panel – it really stands out. Very nice.
