    Keeping it simple

    My summer schedule doesn’t permit lots of shop time but I like to keep something in the works. I ran across a couple videos on Rustic Japanese Tool Boxes and figured it would be a good project to keep things sharp. It was simple but a fun build.

    Material is Red Oak planks left over from window jamb liners. There’s no real plan. I just freestyled it. Other than running the boards through a thickness planer it’s pretty much all Neander work. My new shooting plane made for some good looking end grain.

    Finish is a 48 hour ammonia fuming followed by natural Danish oil. I rubbed in a coat of oil and bee’s wax polish after that dried. There’s a simple elegance to the construction I really like.

    Nice looking box, Rob. I agree the design is sublime. And good on you for keeping a project going in summer.

    LV shooting plane? I love mine...

    Thanks. I'm planning on whipping up a couple more in different sizes and different materials (and with greater precision). I think they might do OK at a silent charity auction that I've made a couple things for in the past.

    Yup, LV Shooter. Perhaps an extravagance, but man does it work well.
