I built this simple Japanese tool box to set up for my traveling tools. My girlfriend has 3 houses and I’m always being called on to fix something or another at each of them. She has an atrocious set of tools, not even a Phillips screw driver could be found at one house. Currently I’m hauling things around in a plastic bucket. This is a big step up from that. This was a very easy project, simple butt joints and nails. I used cut nails. The lid has a unique locking feature that is so simple but works like a charm w/o any hardware. Built in handles on the ends are another feature that is built right in. I finished it with a simple 1/3 BLO, 1/3 spar varnish, 1/3 mineral spirits mix. The plans are available online here.
