A Fine Tool Box!
I love making tool boxes and this is one I would be proud of. It's made by Richard Wile and you can have a look at his blog for some very interesting projects http://richard-wile.blogspot.co.uk/
Richard is using one of my magnetic guides for the dovetails.
Here's a shot with the first coats of finish applied and below is the finished box complete with graduated iron knobs. I like the tasteful use of the cherry sapwood.
The contents certainly do the box justice with some fine Bridge City marking tools.
The plane drawer has one of my mini smoothers which is in exalted company, I can spot a Holtey high angle smoother as well as an original by James Krenov, great stuff!
