Project Information

This is my primary toolbox that I work out of. I based the design on the one my great grandfather had (brown one). This project is actually a little old and is one of the first times I hand cut dovetails for a project.

Here is a peak of the contents



on the right is my low angle jointer plane (definitely my favorite) with the Stanley low angle jack plane next to it and the bronze smooting plane right in front of it. I have my dad's block plane right next to the jack plane. In the back I have a block of scrapers and my router plane. Next to the planes I have (from right to left) a blackburn tools sash saw, A veritas dovetail saw, and a yet unfinished 9tpi rip panel saw. i also keep my sliding bevel on this level



In the top till I keep my set of chisels (1/4"-1" stanley sweethearts), a knife I use for marking, my wheel marking gauge, a set of small files, my spokeshave, a glass cutter, exacto knife (very handy), an awl, and a nail set.

That is most of my everyday hand tools, I have a couple of Japanese saws and my squares that I keep in a slot in the back of my bench as well. let me know what you all think!

I'm glad I clicked on your project. Nice story and love your tools and tool box. I plan to make tool boxes for my nephews.

Nice job, I have been in tool chest mode for several weeks now planning in my head what I will do, so this post comes at the right time for me.
