Default Tool box from reclaimed materials

It says tool box, but to me it looks like something that would go better in the kitchen.

Nice little case. Some time ago a member made a storage case for bits and other small tools. I saved the pictures because it's a someday project. Sorry I don't recall who made this, but it is a wonderful project. The pictures include the leather straps that serve as flat drawere pulls. You can see the contents of the drawers in several of the pictures. Theo's case is larger and would be nice for storing things like hand planes, chisels, small specialty saws, measuring and design tools.

Not a tool box unless it can contain a framing square and hand saw.
Just saying.
He needs wheels and a pull rope on that box, I would hate to pack it around.

Good concept though, wonder if the drawers stay put while transporting? Would look good on top of a roll around tool chest.
