Well this one here is my at home tool box. It doesn’t get bashed around as much since it mostly stays in one place. Little Sheldon knows that it is special and is sooooo good when I open it up and let him pick through the tools. He especially likes pulling out the screwdrivers. Surprisingly, he doesn’t try to get into it when I’m not around, and believe me, he knows how to open lids!!!
This box was originally to be for my boss, but when I realized how badly he had treated the first one I made him, I decided to keep it for myself. It’s a mix of oak, maple, and cherry for the box, and the handles are beech and maple. It’s not too fancy, no drawer, just the spaces for screwdrivers and a few small chisels on the sides. I’m really bad about fitting my toolboxes, they are mostly just a big jumble of tools…..Not great for the sharp tools…
This ones outer dimensions are (in mm) 500 wide 300 deep 380 high.

Neat box. Looks like you got competition on whose box it is. Haaa Haaa. You never know what this might lead into.

Kids pick up their attitudes and actions from their parents, sounds like you treat your tools well and he has
learned from you. Thank you for sharing.
