In this series, Paul decides to reproduce a well-used joiners toolbox that he picked up at a local car boot sale/flea market. This simple chest has a number of interesting features. It is made from relatively thin 1/2″/1.3cm stock which is strengthened by dovetailed trim. This together with its size, which fit a set of all the most necessary tools, makes it a perfect size for taking with you for any job or project you have to do. It is a great introduction to making larger dovetailed boxes and chest.
The tools you will need are:
Tape/Ruler (or both)
Chisels (at least 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″, 3/4″ and 1″)
Smoothing plane (No 4)
Jack Plane (No 5) *(Recommended if preparing wood from rough sawn and edge jointing)
Timber dogs* (optional but shown)
Hand drill/drill driver
Small steel hammer
