I made this tool tray using inspiration from other tool trays in LumberJocks. The bottom is 1/4 inch, the sides are 3/8 inch and the handle is 3/4 inch. The wood had some splits that look good, so I put them on the outside to highlight them.

It’s absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been staring at it for a bit now. I love it when someone takes the extra time to make a utility piece so beautiful.

very nice. it’ll keep all your stuff from rolling onto the floor, and is a wonderful accent in its own right.

Hey, I like this! Decorative toolboxes are among my favorite projects, but mine are all straight cuts. I never thought about adding curves. This is a beaut! Thanks for shaing :)

Lovely work. If I could make something that good I’d keep it up so as it wouldn’t get scratched.

This is great, my daughter wants a tool tray like this when she helps me in the shop, I may borrow your design. If I do you will get the credit.
