Project I made in February 2021. Learned a lot along the way.. had both sides split completely in half and had to glue them back together. Worked surprisingly well.

That’s awesome! I was leaning towards Pekovich’s Tool Chest with Drawers for my next project but this is pretty sweet. Where can you find plans for this project?

Paul Sellers builds this tool box as part of his Woodworking Master Classes series. You have to pay $15/month to get unlimited access to all the videos. I don’t want to sound like I’m advertising for him, but I’ve found the price to be very worth it. I’ve built several of his projects. He shows you exactly what to do, step-by-step. Here’s a link to traveling joiner’s toolbox project that I built: https://woodworkingmasterclasses.com/videos/traveling-joiners-toolbox/

He has another project for a bigger toolbox as well: https://woodworkingmasterclasses.com/videos/joiners-toolbox-project-info/

He actually mentions that Pekovich tool chest here in his blog. I have that issue of Fine Woodworking because Paul Sellers mentioned how he liked the section on shellac:

Great looking tool chest. Interesting that both sides split. Were the top and sides different moisture contents?

Is this walnut? Really eye-catching grain. Great job!

They split while I was fitting the dovetails.. I think I just had them a bit too tight.

Thanks! Yeah, it’s walnut. Strange sap-wood grain on the top looks interesting to me.
