    Woodcarvers Toolbox

    Hey guys! Haven't been online for a while. I wanted to update the final pictures of a project I built for a good friend for his 70th birthday. Mostly built of cherry, carcass is cherry veneered plywood. I glued the veneer. All drawers are cherry construction with handcut dovetails and basswood drawer front so he can carve into them.
    He just flipped over it when he had his birthday. He carved deep relief and decoys along with other things so it has a storage area in back of box to store 8/4 x 20x20 pieces of basswood with no problem. The lid area has enough room for his duck bodies in progress.
    When transporting, the stand will slip right over the top of the box. Carried by 2 handles on the sides. The front of the box folds down to make a work surface. I put a threaded insert in the front of the door where a leg screws into it for support. The leg is removed and put into back of box.

    Very impressive and a great design. I am sure your friend was thrilled.

    Don't like your friend to much do you?? Trying to kill him off aren't you??? Man if I were 70 years young and get something like that, possible heart attack happening!!! Man is that nice! I love the stacking/nesting idea so it is a compact unit. I can't get a sense of the size. About the size of a standard top box on a roll away tool cabinet? The details, drawers, inlay, the whole package, man, that is top notch from start to finish!!! Good reason to be away for a while Don.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Only 70? He should get, at least, a good 15 years use out of that box.
    A work of art and a wonderful gift.
