A few years back I received my grandfathers machinist tool box and was so impressed of it’s quality that I just had to try my hand at making one. I acquired some leftover scraps of African ribbon striped mahogany from a construction job I worked on and used it to make the tool box. I made the entire box exactly like the old one except to gain more drawer space I used 18 gauge sheet metal attached to the bottom of the drawers with contact adhesive. As you can see I’m not a machinist so it houses my dremel supplies and other small carving supplies. This was a very gratifying project for me.
