The Toolbox (Header) - Ep.9

Pre-Sanding, Finishing and Masking

Lesson Objectives

In this video, I’ll show you how to pre-finish the inside faces of the toolbox to prevent glue from sticking.

Series Summary

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.

This oil and wax blend is my go-to finish for most woodworking projects. Would highly recommend!

This wax is slightly more durable than normal beeswax and is a great way to resist glue sticking to the inside of pre-finished carcasses.
