  4. Tool tote in sapele and maple

    This tool tray is 14×9.5×9.5 using 5/16 stuff. I ran out of thicker material so I just laminated the handle. It is just long enough to contain a regular size hammer.

  8. Tool Tote

    Holiday gift made from reclaimed wood. Handle was from a dowel I had lying around. I used a scrap of the pine from the tote for the box joint size. I have a jig for a small size joint but didn't think it would look right and I didn't feel like making another jig to have hanging around. So a...

  10. Japanese tool box

    For our 5 year anniversary, I made my wife this Japanese tool box. The 5 year is the "wood" anniversary, and my wife lived in Japan for a time, so I thought it would be a nice tribute. The box is made from white pine and meranti. The meranti accent pieces were toned with aniline dye in shellac...
  11. Japanese tool box / chisel box (pallet wood)

    Japanese tool box / chisel box. A little tsūrubokkusu (I think!) So after a few days in Paris smelling no wood, but looking a lot on the web, making research for my grease box story (and resting due to my not always funny health), I had to see some shavings, and get the smell of fresh cut wood...
  12. The Whittler's Toolchest

    If you prefer not to read, video is here View on YouTube I have a family member (brother in law) that had mentioned to his wife that he wanted to begin doing finer woodworking. He's in general construction so he doesn't get much chance to make smaller finer items. So what better way to hone...

  15. Wooden Tool Box

    This is my first post, but I've been trolling for quite some time so give a guy a break. This was one of my very very first projects I ever made back before table saw extensions or nice circular saw blades, or face frames or combination rulers, or angle clamps, etc. My "shop" is just one half...
  16. Power Tool Chest

    This is the anarchist's power tool chest, if there is such a thing. The inspiration for this project came from perusing internet photos of actual anarchist's tool chest photos. Currently the majority of my tools require electricity. And up until recently all these tools took up a massive amount...
  17. Son's 1st Toolbox

    This was something that I had been wanting to build for my son for quite some time now. I gave it to him for Christmas this year.

  19. Tool chest ? ....

    The chest is made out of cedar, salvaged from an old corner cabinet disassembled 20 years ago when we moved to our current house. Fortunately I kept the lumber in the attic for all this time. I have been researching for a tool chest since a couple of months ago. (I don´t know why surfing the...
  20. Marking Gauge Dovetail Practise Box

    Hi guys, Nothing too special. I am still trying to get proficient at hand cutting dovetails so make opportunities to keep cutting them. This box was more dovetail practise - I just decided I may as well build a box while I was at it to hold my marking gauges - there is a spot reserved in the...
