    That looks amazing, well done Serhiy.

    Anything I make will be better next time.


    Wow, impressive work. A tool box that will last for over a hundred years I am sure. Leaving apart of ourselves through our work, long after we have left this world somehow gives me comfort. Just curious, did you use solid wood panels for the drawer bottoms? In all of my projects requiring drawers I tell myself I will use solid wood for the bottoms, only to give in to weakness and use plywood, hahah.

    Serhiy it looks fantastic! The walnut really sets it off. It’s obvious that you poured yourself into this build. Congratulations.

    Thank you all for the kind words.
    Thank you Greg for the advice with the top))
    John, I’m working with the rough lumber, trying to minimize cost of projects. I only used birch plywood for the top compartment bottom, and reason for that is wood movement. I think if I used solid wood I had to make grooves in the walls to allow for wood’s seasonal changes. Yes, I made those thin panels for drawers bottoms, hand tools only.I even wove a rope instead of buying brass chain, trying to learn something new)
    Thanks again guys))
