I have been making an effort to streamline the organization in our basement these last couple of projects. The shelf unit in my wife's stained glass space is a big improvement. I was inspired next to make a small tool box specifically for my small tools. Currently they are spread around several drawers and shelves in my shop and that is not working as well as I would like.
The box I am building is following a style loosely based on a Japanese tool box. There are several of versions of these boxes, as there are many versions of tool boxes generally. I am making my box with dado corners which is a variation.

The unique feature of all Japanese Style boxes seems to be the way that the lid attaches.

Final pictures to follow, right now the stain is drying and I am trying to figure out exactly what tools will live in the little box.
