To reduce the mess on my workbench while working on a project, i designed this wooden toolbox.

It’s cut out of 9mm birch plywood by my cnc-router and connected by mortise and tenon joints with dogbones for a fast assembly process.

The handles and the latching lock are 3D-Printed. The lid opens automatically with a gas spring.

Check out the assembly video below!

assembly process

After the assembly of the wooden parts you just have to nail them together or use wood glue and clamps instead.
Then you just have to screw in the handle, hinge and front latches and you are ready to go.
