This is a tool box I made to hold what little tools I had at the time. But now I have meny more tools than it can hold or will fit. It was my first drawer’s project so they’re not that pritty. It’s made from old barn board, I planed the paint off, dovetailed the back and part of the top front. the top, shelfs, and bottom are grooved in. I made the drawer handles from two cut offs. The drawers are a loose fit but that just makes them easier to pull out right. The top will hold a stanley no. 3 on it’s side and various other block planes. A stanley no. 5 might fit but i haven’t tried it yet. No I don’t smoke cigars I got it with a bunch of gimlets in it. It’s just a useful little box you know for holding little things. I left it unfinished becuse I’m just not good at finishing plus it’s a tool box whats it need finish for. well thanks for look at IT. hope it was fun.

Yes I think also it has a wonderful touch to it.
Like history passed from the barn to the tool box.
