Essential Tool Box
I built the Essential Tool Box featured in FW. I mocified it by adding an extra drawer. I found when finished I didn’t like what I was putting the box on. I built a rollaway box to put under it and complement each other. The carcases are built out of red oak with 1 coat of amber shellac then several coats of clear shellac sanded between coats. Tthe dovetails and mortise and tenons are all handcut. The drawers have bubinga fronts, maple carcase and 1/4″ baltic birch ply bottoms. The drawers joinery is machine cut dovetails.
A beautiful toolbox. I'd be surprised of one or more people in your life didn't want this as a piece of furniture.
Looks really good and quite large if I might add. Good thinking to add wheels. A box of this size is probably very heavy and will only get heavier. The tool set only grows,as we all know :)
Definitely need more photos of this. For example how you handled drawer divisions and interiors...
