I love making boxes and have a particular fondness for tool boxes, not the large 'takes two people to carry type', but the handily sized bench top versions.
I found this on recently in an antique shop, it is very nicely proportioned and is hand dovetailed on all corners. It's made from Elm and dates from the late 19 C.
Jameel Abraham made a strikingly similar box which can be seen here. http://benchcrafted.blogspot.co.uk/2010/10/wia-birds-eye-maple-box.html
Here is another box which I've had for a while, probably from the 1960's again with classical proportions and hand cut dovetails on the drawers.
The top set of drawers are dummies, and I intend to make a version of this. 20" x 9" d x 11 1/4" h.
Here is my tool box which I take to shows. it is very useful and I know everything I need is contained within. It measures 21" w x 12 1/2" d x 9 1/2" w. You can see a You Tube video I made below.
