Woodsmith tool box

Here’s a project I completed 8 or 10 years ago (can’t even remember now)—it was a Christmas gift for my brother. I built it from plans in Woodsmith—it might have been the same issue that had plans for a box-joint jig for the table saw, because I built that, too, and used it to make this toolbox. (I happened to be at my brother’s house this weekend, saw the toolbox, and realized I never kept any photos of it.)

Although I had woodworking tools in mind when I made it for him, my brother has used it instead to keep a collection of treasured fishing lures handed down to him by his late father-in-law.

It’s pretty much all made of 1/4” thick red oak, finished with satin polyurethane. At the time, I believe it was probably the most complicated thing I had built.

If I can remember to look it up, I’ll add the specific issue of Woodsmith that the project came from.

Nice work Doug. That plan came out in issue #63 of Woodsmith from June 1989. I made three of them about 10 or 15 years ago. One for myself and I liked it so much I made two more, one for each of my nephews for Christmas one year. I use mine at work and have since I built it and it is still holding up well, it is an excellent plan.

I have the same plans and one of these days I’m going to build one for me, too. Maybe out of walnut since I got a chunk of that in the garage.
