Hand cut box joints
a tool tote tray.

My favourite tool tote, that I build back in 2010, needed a new tray, as the old one had changed purpose.

The tray.

The old tray had also always felt wrong for me as, I didn’t like the proportions and the machine made box joints, didn’t go well with the hand cut dovetails on the tote it self. I like machine cut box joints a lot, but not mixed with hand cut dovetails, here the contrast was simply too big.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, or a few box joints…
