Tool Box from scrap wood

I needed a tool box for my latest job that I started back in July so I built this one out of scrap pine and plywood, used in the top and bottom. I built it around a tray I had made from some other imported scrap wood. The bottom of the tray I know was bamboo plywood. Well the box and tray cost nothing but all that brass hardware cost bucks. The finish is simply sprayed orange shellac (Ok , today it’s called amber)... oh about 6 coats. And just like here I added the turned handles afterwards.

That is a great box! I love the design and the finish! At first glance, I had no idea it was pine. Very cool!
