This is a tool tote that I made for the land of misfit tools also known as the barn. This was a quick and fun build that I was able to complete over the holidays. The two drawers have a tong on the bottom of the drawer face that fits into a grove that is cut into the tool tote bottom that prevents the drawers from opening unexpectedly. Because the drawers must be lifted about a ¼” before they can be pulled out the dovetailed sides have rabbets that accommodate the upward lifting of the front of the drawer face. The case of the tool tote is made of pine and the drawer faces are made from cherry. The handle is made of maple that I shaped by hand and sanded to 320 grit so it’s ultra smooth.
The tool tote is finished with a couple of coats of tung oil and it now ready for the barn.
