Saw this in an article by Chris Schwartz. I have a lot of iron and steel stuff laying around so seemed like a good idea. So I drew up the plans based on the article and started. Little did I know there was a BOOK ! However when I checked the book I was pretty close to dead on; dumb luck.
The wood is poplar except for the bottom which is pine. All the joinery is hand done including the tongue and groove on the bottom. All the ploughing and tongue and groove was done with a Record 405. Not sure about finish so raw for now. The hardest part was fitting the mortis lock.
I would recommend getting the book The Anarchists Tool Chest. The writing is dead on too folks who lean towards hand tools.
I still have to complete the interior; saw till and sliding trays. Oh. and the chisel mark on my thumb is healing quite well!
