  1. Japanese toolbox made with hand tools

    I am not able to get to my main workshop during the quarantine so i used the few hand tools that I do have to build this Japanese box. I made it based on a slightly smaller version I had made previously (shown in second photo). All of the tools I used to build it fit inside the completed box...
  2. Family toolbox

    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...
  3. Stool Box....cause a stool is just too boring

    I need a stool in the shop so my youngest kiddos can help with projects. I didn't want a regular stool though because they just take up space and get in the way. They only serve one purpose. I came up with this stool box to combat that theory. I can actually flip it over use it as a carrying...
  4. Longest time project- tool box

    I started this about 40 years ago, & got as far as the pins on the sides, and one set of tails on an end of the 1/2" red oak. After carting those pieces around to 6 different shop locations, finally got around to it again. The one joint no longer fit, so the sides were made slightly shorter &...
  5. Irwin Auger Bit Set/Box

    My attempt to replicating an old Irwin Auger Bit Set box. The original was in pieces and falling apart and the lid was missing. The auger bits were badly rusted and no longer sharp. I cleaned up the rust in an electrolysis bath. I picked the best of the bunch to add to the box and I suspect...
  6. Tool Caddy - for gardening, drawing, painting... (post)

    Tool Caddy for gardening, drawing, painting… Hi LJ's, Here a post from the blog on the making of a tool caddy, as a Christmas present for my girlfriend. I enjoyed this little project for many reasons, first off all because it is a gift for my gf, second because it was an improvised project...
  7. Anarchist Tool Chest- C. Schwarz Inspired

    Previously, I posted a project about rescuing an old tool chest that had been sitting in a horse stable for at least the last 4 decades. Prior to taking that project on, I knew very, very little about these kinds of tool chests. I guess I probably still know very little about them, but I know...
  8. Tool Totes with Compound Angled Dovetail Joints

    Been meaning to try to build a project with angled dovetails on compound butt joints. After viewing some Youtube videos, developed this method. These are for my daughter and wife. Garden tool totes. Next step,... compound miter joints! Watch the video to see how I did it. Bob A Jan 8, 2022
  9. Hand cut box joints - a tool tote tray. (Post).

    Hand cut box joints a tool tote tray. My favourite tool tote, that I build back in 2010 (as you can see in this blog series), needed a new tray, as the old one had changed purpose. The tray. The old tray had also always felt wrong for me as, I didn't like the proportions and the machine made...
  10. Toolbag #3

    Bag fetishism is not exclusive to the females. At least not when toolbag are considered. Gifted with a demanding day job, a toddler and a family, most of the time I only can dream or think about woodworking, rather than being in the shop. And toolboxes/toolbags are the essence of the dream of...
  11. Filled Dutch Tool Chest

    This was a project I always wanted to do. Build a tool box and fill it with tools I made. I couldn't resist making the hinges. Other than a few pine boards for the box, everything was made from things found in the shop. Finish is milk paint with a coat of wax. I've also added a few items to...
  12. Beer Swap 2020

    For the 2020 Beer Swap a collection of various local and regional Michigan brews including a tart cherry libation. I packaged it in a Japanese tool box sized to hold 8 16oz cans or a fat roll of Japanese chisels and a brass mallet. As with a Japanese Tool Box the wood is simple Western Red...
  13. Mystery Tool Tote

    The point of this project was to practice my joints, Dovetails on this project. I fail to see the reasoning in practicing joints just so you have more fire wood. It also includes finger joints (which did not work out too well). Hardly fine furniture or creative box making but a handy...

  15. Arts and Crafts Tool Box

    This tool box was a gift for my sister. She does a lot of sewing and crafts so needed a place to hold all her supplies and hand tools. This tool box has two slide out bins to hold hardware, a main storage compartment, and pull up top container.

    finally got the finish on the osage rocker(used the the witches brew) after it sets for a few days i will wax and buff. The lumber is the osage we got from one tree. Many more projects to come from that. I hope to sell this chair before a relative sees it.
  17. Toolbox in Progress

    This is a tool box I'm working on for joinery school. The carcass is birch ply and solid beech. The inlay and drawer fronts are padauk and drawer runner and pulls (not shown) are going to be wenge. I know I'm not really supposed to post works-in-progress, but, heck, I'm excited. I'll post...
  18. tool box

    I had seen quite a few people making these and i really liked them, so i figured i'd try and build one for me. I didn't have any plans to go off so i was constantly looking at them on lumberjocks or magazines. I used oak 1 by 12 with beadboard paneling for my top, which i now see that it is...
  19. oak tool tote

    Tool tote made from scraps of oak I had picked up, the sides are made from pieces about 11/4" wide glued up. I did buy the dowel for the handle. I made the dividers removable in case I wanted to put longer stuff in it. This was my first attempt at box joints. I had some chip out on the joints...
  20. A more portable tool box.

    This box is based on a Japanese design that I upgraded the carcase joints a bit on. The joinery is more the "quick and dirty" side than the fine side, so I left some blowout here and there. Here is a description of the pictures: 1. The Box on my tool chest 2. A detail of the joinery 3. Lid...
