Made from Eastern White Pine with a Colonial Maple stain. I forgot how difficult it can be to work with soft pine. It dents and scratches with a light touch. Tools have to be razor sharp (mine where not) or you will crush the fibers rather than cut through them. Tearout is awful and cracks propagate easily along the grain. You also have to be very careful not to sand too aggressively. My first attempt at this toolbox was to use a 3/4" box joint, but several of the fingers popped off with just a little pressure. So I found this basic design on Google and modified it to suit my needs.
