I was in need of a toolbox to place my marking gauges, knives, and all sorts of small tools. I had a lot of scraps around the shop and that need produce this ugly creature. The frame is sapele. The panels are sycamore and cedar. The drawer carcases are pine tubafores. The base is red oak. Now the only part I bought were the drawer fronts, some maple and zebra. There is some popular and bamboo and probably a few other species.
Now the biggest issue was during the making of the drawer carcass I cut the dadoes in the wrong side of the cases. This would not have been a big problem for box joints but these were tubafores that were hand planed and joined. So I had to start over. CRAP.
I have done a video on the build. You will see the finished product then the build goes backwards. Remember ITS GOING IN MY SHOP>
