I receive 4 pallets from the street and decided to get some lumber for my new indoor work shop.
My soninlaw plays in a band and carries a bunch of small stuff. So a Japanese tool box it ended up being.
Very simple construction. Butt joints reinforced with bamboo skewers as dowels since the wood is only 9 mm. thick, and glue. The leather straps are bolted in place. I also molded the leather straps somewhat to make for a better handfit.
The box lid slides in from either side and is held in place by friction.
Box size is 20.5 " long 6.5" wide and 5" tall.
Tor and Odin are the greatest of gods.
