Joiner’s Toolbox – Episode 13

Joiners Toolbox 13

This is an episode in a paid series. Want to watch it? You just need to sign up as a paid member and you can enjoy this video and many other videos we think you will love.

This is the penultimate episode of this project. With the tills together, Paul planes and fits them before working on the hinge rail on the top till. With this fitted, the next step is the fitting of the hinges to the till and lid before the final fitting of the till to the box.

    i really look forward to building this toolbox, i had to laugh when Paul say’s he’s been lazy not planing enough off the side, if he is ever considered lazy there is no hope for the ret of us

    I’ve just spent a lovely hour watching this episode and it suddenly dawned on me: when I first joined this Masterclass, I’d have been watching this WISHING I could build something like this. But now I watch these videos confidently PLANNING when I’ll build my toolbox. I think it’s a real testament to Paul’s teaching methods that this change has come over me so gradually that I’ve not been aware of my growth.

    Jon, that is exactly how I feel! I think I could go to the workshop this weekend and build this. Albeit, t would take me longer and might not look as good, bit I could confidently go to work building this!!

    Hi guys! I just finished my first attempt at this toolbox, and will be giving it to my Grandson as a toy chest. I plan on building a second one, complete with tills, in a few days. I have also found that Paul is a great teacher. However, I seem to always need practice and never get everything correct on the first try. It is good to have a Grandson, it makes it easier to sell the time to my wife. 🙂

    Wonderful final segment on fitting out the hinges of the sliding tool till. Hope mine turns out as well as
    Paul’s. I know the best guidance and lessons are now at hand for future reference.
    Thanks to all the crew and the ” Wizard Perfect” you are the best!

    The best bits are definitely where you show how to do those micro-corrections. You may not have to do them very often, Paul, but us mere mortals are constantly puzzling over how to adjust for all our errors. So please don’t always get it right first time!

    It’s hard to believe there’s only one week left and the series is done already. Great project, Paul, I’ve enjoyed it very much.

    Paul and Joseph, great series and i can’t wait to start my own. I really enjoyed this and learned as usual a lot, hope mine turns out as nice as Paul’s.

    This has been a wonderful project. I love how you teach us to fix our mistakes if they should arise. My box has taken a back seat for the moment. It seems that as my skill level has improved I have become very busy with projects from family and friends. There is no way I could ever repay for what you have given me. Thank you Master.

    Does anyone have any feedback on how they finished the tills?

    I’m putting in the hinges right now, and the hinge that fits correctly measured 1 1/2″ x 3/4″ (open). The video states 1 1/2″ x 1″ which would be too big. Just an FYI for anyone building this (I’m almost done). This is a great design and I can’t wait to put my tools in it!
