I made this little tool box for my wife, to hold tools she uses in her hobby activities (jewelry and journal-making). I used an old 1×12 that was once a shelf—I suspect it may be southern yellow pine, but I’m not sure; it was very aromatic when I milled it, and left a lot of resin on my planer. Since I don’t have a stacked dado set yet, I made a box-joint jig for one-eighth of an inch cuts (the width of my saw blade’s kerf). Finished it with a couple of coats of satin polyurethane.
(She likes it.)
