Just my second post, hope you like it.

I made this machinist tool box after seeing Gerstner and Sons boxes on ebay. Solid Oak. Arch raised panels. 270˚ hinges and lid lock from from Lee Valley. Felt for the drawers and upper tray. Aluminum pulls are my own creation. Clear satin water based poly finish.

WOW is that a nice tool box! I love it. I could never afford a good wood one nor could I make one back when I needed it. You did a real fine job build that box. Use it and show it with pride!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh, you need that diamond shaped mirror in it like a Gerstner

It is beautiful, more for jewelry rather than for tools. (not that the tools do not deserve it…)

WOW!!...to just say WOW I feel is understating the craftsmanship that went into producing an exquisite piece of cabinetry, what an amazing job you have done there, it is just too beautiful to use on a workshop, more a display piece… great job.

Now that is one super nice tool box. Wow indeed. I would be really surprised if your wife don’t take it for a jewelry box.

I own a couple of Gerstners that never looked that nice. Good job and thanks for sharing.
