Reclaimed American chestnut, curly maple, and plain maple.
There are probably better ways to store woodworking tools, but getting the most storage space really wasn’t first priority. I was just playing around with different wood species and stain colors.

Sometimes you people just ‘playing around’ with wood and stains make me sick!

If anything I ever build will be as good looking and well executed as this toolbox I will die a happy man.

Wow! What scrap pile are you digging in? It’s fantastic. Your dog looks unimpressed, though;)

Ausgezeichnete Holzbearbeitung. Sehr schöne Verwendung von verschiedenen Hölzern. Aufgewachsen bin ich in NW Ohio. Meine Familie kam aus der Nähe von Bremen im Jahr 1868. Herzlich willkommen in den USA.
