The plan was to make a tool box. It's so small, I am not sure if it counts as one?
When I saw the tutorial post on how to make a tool box over at FJI, I had to give it a try. I found some fabulously worn boards from what looked like an old crate, and used them for the mini toolbox.
My dad was an incredibly awesome carpenter...maybe that's why I enjoy working with wood. He made ALL the furniture for our home and that furniture were meant to last. Sadly when they moved from one country to another, a lot of the furniture was sold.
The hardware to attach the handle came from an old window.
We brought out the nail gun to whip up the sides. It seemed to be our best option because the boards were really quite thin. I simply used wire to secure the handle. Perfect! I’m sure my dad would approve of my wood work attempts, but probably not my style. :)
Now what to put into the box? I tried my handmade roses...
...and muffins? Tied up in a strip of fabric. I guess It could be a little gift basket/box!
