Resaw a bunch of Ash scraps, and a few of Pine, too. 6 drawers, and a storage compartment on top. Cap rail molding around the bottom edge. Foam pad and a chain for the storage area. Breadboard ends on the 1/4” thick lid.
Antique plated brass hardware.

Size? Lid is 17-3/4” long, by 8” at the finger lift….case and lid combine to 8-3/4” tall. Compartment is 1-5/8” deep.
There MIGHT be a build along BLOG somewhere…something about a July Project? I was “Delayed”.....

Still on the lookout for a pair of handles…need a way to carry this thing, when it gets filled up..
Thanks for looking in….

Looks very nice. Maybe a loop of chain for handles or not? Color is appealing.

Another fine project, Bandit. Are you planning to put lifting handles on each end?

IF I can find ones I like, and match the rest of the hardware….

Have a cardboard box or two, with all sorts of small tools and things…may see if they will all fit…if not…can always make another box….maybe…

Thanks for looking in.

Very nice tool box, and I can see what one would use it for. The finer tools is a great choice. Too nice to really be the n a shop, would look better in the living room. Great Job
