Timber tool box

Kind of a Big Deal

Timber tool box

I decided to make a timber toolbox for timber off cuts and salvaged kerbside timber, my intention  was to use materials at hand, I had pine for the sides, marine ply for the base,  IKEA bed timber ( looks like Swedish pine) for the sides, merbau timber for the handle.


I made the joins by making box joints, the base was recessed  and screwed on the bottom, I did this to allow future replacement if required.


The handle was shaped by making a template and using a jigsaw to cut and router to finish.


The toolbox was oiled then waxed.
