Project Information

A Japanese traditional toolbox was one of the first things I wanted to build when I first got into woodworking over a year ago. I didn't feel quite ready to build something that big until this summer as I slowly acquired the necessary tools and basic skills to use them. I'll admit I was hoping for something more polished and sleek at the end, but I'm happy to say all the mistakes were new ones ;) With that said, I'm glad my tools have a home now, and I can get ready to work on the next project on my list.

I blogged more about the build in this series.

Details: sugar pine, alaskan yellow cedar, walnut wedges; finished with blo & shellac

Great! I love this style. Your shavings from planing are impressive! Gotta get me one of those.

Thanks everyone. It was a fun build, although next time I have to mill/flatten boards this big again, I might just pay someone to do it for me.

I like the simple lines and design. Simple but well executed, that is what makes it so nice.
