Few years ago, I bumped into the Chainsaw Toolbox of Woodstock which was inspired by the one from Boxguy and I was mesmerized, I found them amazing!

I immediately favourited them and promised myself to build one.

I am passionate with hand tools, so I did my version 100% without electricity (appart from the light!)

I used oak and walnut from my garden sawmill.
I used my favourite tools pictured here under and finished the box with Mineral Oil and Shellac.

Sorry the box was empty when I took the pictures, due to the current lock down situation I cannot access what will be in the box.

Thanks Woodstock and Boxguy for inspiration!

Now, few pictures of the build

The wood was milled

Then cut to size

A tongue and groove for the bottom

Dovetails

Dadoes for the axe supports

Suppports cut to shape

Spokeshaved

Scratch stocked

Chamfered

Dowels prepared

Schellac

And picture taken on a nice Danish island!

Beautiful work and I absolutely love the idea of a axe as handle.

I had also favorited Woodstock’s Chainsaw Toolbox. Now I’m doubly inspired to make myself one.

Artistic wood working and great photographs.

Big smile.
I were not only fascinated with the toolbox, all your beautiful tools also made me smile big time and my heart made a warm beating. But I also enjoyed the beautiful pictures and yes the light looked Danish, it reminded me of a place I often go, to hang out in my hammock.
What were you doing there?
Next time around, let me know, then I can invite you to visit me in Copenhagen or in summer time at my allotment in Vordingborg.
Best thoughts,
Mads

What a great post. I definitely appreciate the craftsmanship, brought to life with the excellent photos. I kind of felt like I was there, hearing the whoosh of the plane. Nice job and a beautiful project.

MrLaughingbrook: Many thanks. I guess mine is much smaller as the axe is only 50cm long. But I suppose I have much less gear than them to fit! Thanks again for your nice comment

mafe: Thank you it means a lot to me. I have a summerhouse on Falster, I took the pictures there last week. I will write to you. Thanks for your nice words

tt1106: Many thanks. I enjoy photography, specially with big wide open lenses. It is the first built I try to document so well, it is really time consuming but I guess I could put some of the 100 pictures of that project on the wall, I would not mind…now…would my wife mind?!

swirt: Many thanks for the nice words, it is really motivating, thank you

That is one sweet little project, looks great, and the details created by hand must have been fun to do. Hand tool old traditional woodworking is relaxing and makes woodworking fun.

Just the most beautiful toolbox. I love the axe handle as well as the incredible details that you added to every aspect of this box. Truly artwork and far beyond the meaning of toolbox. Being as aspiring photographer, I must say that your photos are top notch as well!
Congrats and thanks for sharing.

Nicely done. I had to chuckle though. Your pictures sort of look like the last places it was seen after walking away and forgetting where you left it. :-)
