I decided i needed a primary mobile toolbox for my woodworking tools and designed this for the cause. the case is done with 3/4” oak ply and trimmed with a walnut banding. the drawer cases were done with 3/4” pine and the drawer faces started as pre finished oak flooring glued up into 2 lg panels then cut to size so the grain was consistent left to right, top top bottom. The drawer runners are all full extension soft close side mounts and the over all dimensions of the finished lower portion are 32”W x 24”D x 48”H. I Have plans on a upper box using dove tail joinery for the case and drawers and a lift up hinged top.
