Tool box is a box with a lot of tools in it. This is a box with all the tools organized in it. It nice to have alot of tools but a pain when you can't find them. In this box each tool has a place and wood to hold it there.

The piece of wood behind the router is apple burl that is notched in the back for the middle saw to slide down and out.
