    Looks great! I like to see different adaptations of the the design, in the side by side drawers. Keep the pictures coming!

    Those of you who have built this thing know what I am talking about when I say how nervious I was to put the saw to this thing. All I need now is some finish and put the hinges on. Of course I have to fix a few screw ups and dings….. But it’s done, almost!

    Well done Sandy. I’ve not built one, no room for it yet, but I can imagine how nerve racking it must be to saw the lid away from the case. Congrats!

    Well done Sandy cutting in half not so hard after all I bet.
    I have made boxes in past where I have had to cut in half.
    That sort of thing never really phased me as I am so used to using a handsaw/panelsaw. Mark 2 gauge lines just wider than kerf of saw. Then use nice even stroke with NOT a lot of power going through stroke let saw do work. Have couple of little wooden wedges ready incase cut start to bind wax or oil saw.
    I did have a tool box I made when I was very young had a couple of saws in it block plane, smoother, chisels. brace and bits coping saw level a general carpenters tool box for the life of me I did not know what happened to that toolbox.

    Mark, It sounds like a good reason to build another one. I’ve got a few more of these to do for my sons.

    Greg, I’m running out of room too. I will actually have to swap out the old tool chest to make room for this one.

    Thanks for all of the compliments on the box. Sorry about the side ways picture. I try to remember to turn the darn things but I sure missed this one.

    My box has been sitting around unfinished for too long. I had a tough time with the lid. It isn’t pretty but I just want to finish it. I attached the top and bottom and sawed it in two. Actually that wasn’t hard. I’m a better sawyer then planer (I think). Now I’m motivated to get it done. I just have to do the drawers.

    David, I’ve been fixing the screw ups on my box all day. It ain’t perfect but it was fun to build. The next one will be even better…
