Actually, it ended up not being a tool tote at all. My mother is using it for her knitting. That is why I spent a little extra time on the finish.

It did start out being a tool tote but it turned out so nice I wanted to it to not get banged around, hence the knitting box idea. Mum loves it. Of course she would probably love it even if it was two pieces of wood held together with a rusty nail, if I made it.

Anyway the timber is Tasmanian Oak and Kwila sides. Hope you all like it.

You have every right to have a big grin… that knitting box is great… I love the dovetail detail on the handle… such great work…
It will be passed down… for many years…

I love the handle and the dovetail fit. Is there a basket that fits inside, I see a small step in the two end panels???? Great work.

I was originally going to have a draw that slid into the step. But the project was hanging around on my bench for over a year. I am going through a finish off old stuff stage. NO NEW PROJECTS till I finish everything I have already started. Yeah right. But the easiest way to finish this off was to skip the draw and have full height sides.
