I made this toolbox based loosely on a plan in Shopnotes (Volume 20, Issue 120, August 2011). Other than the rough dimensions, I made it up as I went along. This is my first attempt at dovetails and massive amounts of epoxy was used to make sure the dovetails don’t go anywhere.
The box is cherry, and the handle has is cherry strip laminated between two strips of hard maple. The handle was bandsawn from a oversize piece and then shaped with planes, spokeshaves and sandpaper. The handle is held in place with glue and dowel pins. The finish is Watco danish oil with wax on top of it.
Thanks for looking
