first welcome to Lumber Jock enjoy and have fun while you hang out on this corner :-)
you will see they will help you all they can

what kind of toolbox are you talking about and what kind of bench
big question yes :-)
I gess the toolbox shuold be sturdy but simple as possible take a look under projects fane
and toolbox tags and you will find a bunch of them from simple to masterpieces
the same goes for workbenches
i will recoment one made of plywood or two by fours as the first workbench
later when you have found out what you want to work with in the future
you can build your advanced dream bench :-)

when you look at toolboxes and benches then scroll down to coments
you will often find more knowledge between them too maybee a few other pictures
often has the project poster made a blog too about the build
the same goes for the comments there

good luck

I want to make the carpenter’s tool box and bench on this website. I would like a pattern so I know how to make the cuts.

Contact the original poster of the tool box and bench on this site that you’re talking about, and ask them if they have measure drawings and/or a cut list.

If you click on the “Projects” tab at the top of the page you will be taken to the projects page.
Then on the left column you will see key words that will narrow the search to project tagged with those words.
For example: for Workbench, there will be over 1200 projects on the list.
For Tools, there will be 123 projects.

From that point you can click on any particular project to go to it and then view it in more detail.

This “site” does not create or post projects of its own. The projects on here are posted by the members of he site.

Welcome aboard, by the way.

I’m guessing he wants to build this project:

Greg, you’ll have to contact the person who built it.
