In this video, I’m going to show you how to cut the tongue and groove base that will make up the bottom of the toolbox. I actually made an error with this stage so be sure to watch all the way through to the end to see how you can avoid doing the same!
This 15 part series will teach you the processes involved in making a beautiful toolbox; because it’s about time we made something for ourselves for once!
This course builds on the basic skills learnt in the Dovetail Box Series and the Cabinet Series by introducing more intermediate skills into the equation such as mitred dovetails, tongue and groove joints, and separating a lid after glue-up. You’ll also begin learning how to use routers and router tables in a safe and effective manner.
What’s more, this design is incredibly easy to adapt to different scales to suit different applications.
