I didn't have a toolbox, so decided to make one on my own.

What you will need

some chisels

some different planks (not shure on the messurements on mine)

nice to have a router(i bought mine after this project)

some playwood

pianohinge

some leather

How to do this project

1

I used thise planks i did find at my grandfathers house. Cut the planks in the lengths you want it to be, could be nice to make them a bit longer if it's your first try on tennons

Drill or router out a bit for your tennons first, or use your chissel. Square up the holes.

Make tennons that fits the hole, make a cut wide enough too fit the bottom plate in.

4

Glue and hammer the box together, and make a lid.

Then i made a tray for my chissels, that bearly fits in the top of the toolbox.
