Having some time off and no decent wood (nor the funds to buy any) I went scrounging for some packing crates. Gotta love Craigslist. Got three and broke them down. I used this wood to make this toolbox. It was a ‘practise project for me. I have never made anything with joints nor have I ever attempted drawers. Its about 24”x16”x 14”. I identified two distinct types of pine, a resiny wood that may be Eucalyptus and a dense, almost pure white mystery wood. Its finished with Danish Oil. The drawer pulls and lid lifter are off-cuts from cutting board projects.
