Classic Wooden Toolbox

(c) 2007 Chris Baylor licensed to About.com, Inc.
For literally hundreds or years, carpenters have carried their woodworking tools to and from their job sites in wooden toolboxes. The classic wooden toolbox is the essence of simplicity, with no screws or nails, instead relying on woodworking joinery to give the toolbox the strength to carry upwards of fifty pounds of tools.

In this set of free woodworking plans, learn how to build our version of the classic wooden toolbox. As with those built 200 years ago, you'll need no mechanical fasteners, relying instead on the strength of woodworking joinery.

This woodworking project is typically painted, but could also be stained, then sealed with a few coats of polyurethane. Keep in mind that it is designed to be sturdy, and will likely get dinged up a bit with use.
