Japanese tool tray
for the toolbox.
My sketch for the japanese inspired tool tray.
This post comes from my Japanese tool tote blog.
To complete the setup for working with Japanese tools I wanted a little tool tray that I could use to hold and carry tools while working, especially to keep the chisels off the ground.
I decided it should be made so it could be stored and transported in the toolbox when not in use, that it should be made with the same joinery as the drawer and again no hardware.
For the beauty and the joy of the eye I wanted a handle made of a branch like I have on my tool tote , so first step was a walk in the forest.
1. Tool tray full of tools and ready for working wood.
2. Finger joints.
3. Japanese saw.
4. Making grooves with a Record 43.
5. Handle details.
6. Tray in the toolbox.
I hope this could be to some inspiration, perhaps some Japanese tool boxes.
