The toolbox is the first large project that is designed to the student's practical and aesthetic choices. There are size and drawer number parameters, and wood species recommendations, but students are able to measure their own tools and plan the tool box accordingly.
I'll try to get the plans up for the toolbox at some point. For now I have some shots of the start of work on the carcass. It's a dovetailed box that will have stopped dadoes for the drawer divider frames. A lapped back and frame and panel lid (in the front) will enclose the box.
I settled on cherry for the primary wood and will be using pine for the drawer parts and poplar for the secondary wood in the divider frames and lapped back. I purchased the cherry from a fellow student, Timm Schlieff, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was unlike any cherry I had ever seen. As it is an anomaly, I don't really think it would be appropriate for some other projects so I'm glad to be able to use it on the toolbox.
