Our first real skill based build in the series is a simple toolbox that we will build to heirloom quality. The project offers a multitude of practice opportunities before each critical cut and is forgiving for errors. So even if everything is “slightly off” you will still end up with an attractive, functional tool box. These same techniques and designs can be modified to make a blanket chest, wall cabinet, display shelf, side table or dresser.

And to think, this is only the fourth class in the series. We’re gonna go a long way…..

Below is a link to my plan sketch for this project. I would appreciate that if you need to download this teaching aide you throw a few shekels my way. Offering free plans requires a whole new “service” with my internet provider which is an added expense. There are many ways listed below to enable your support.
