Great work! I look forward to seeing more of your designs.
Nice, nice, nice !! I'm just a newbie in the woodworking world, but to me ,this is true craftmanship . Would love any advice you can give .
This box is great! how are the drawers supported inside the case with so little room? I would like to learn the technique. Thanks
Thank you all for your gracious comments. The drawer fronts started with a one piece glue-up then diagonally cut on the table saw to create the curve. It was dado-ed to receive long handles and then sliced to size. No dovetails because it was just a "quickie" (ha ha 9 weekends) toolbox.
Excellent design, in particular I love the utility and aesthetics of the drawer pulls. Did you cove cut the drawer handle relief areas with a small blade on your table saw? Bandsaw and spindle sander? Drill press? They align beautifully however you did it!
I'd have liked to have seen half blind dovetails on the drawers, but that's my only constructive criticism. This design kicks ass!
This is a drop-dead terrific piece of work. It is a combination of beauty and utility that is hard to achieve. Every detail is spot on.
Thank you for your photographs. Great job!
I think of myself as a "tough crowd". But I gotta say I like this box!
