I’m working on another decorative toolbox at the moment, but just thought I’d share this one in the mean time, which I built about a week ago. The design couldn’t be any simpler, just 6 pieces glued together, sanded smooth, and finished with satin wipe on poly. It measures 7-1/4” X 16” X 12” tall. The sides are 1/2” thick and the handle is 5/8” x 1”. I finished it with 3 coats of wipe-on satin polyurethane.

Nothing like simplicity. I like the lines of this . Nice work.

Ted,

This is lovely and simple. I like the beautiful wood. Perfect application of Occam’s Razor. I can’t tell, did you round off the bottom of the handle?

Just an idea…I made several similar shapes to make a holder for sawblades. Of course there was a central divider. Have fun and thanks for sharing.

Very handsome! Wenge’s difficult for me to work with. This is a nice piece.

Thanks everybody :)

Boxguy, I didn’t round the bottom of the handle but all the outside corners are softened to the point of being slightly rounded, about a 1/64 radius I think. I typically do that with all my pieces, as I kind of like the “worn” look.
