    Wood box is a fun project i wanted to build... I wanted a storage box in the truck but don't feel like spending more than 100 dollars... So im building one! I'll prolly end up rhino lining the box as well.

    Very nice. Dovetails? Do I detect a woodworker? Did you cut with a saw prior, or just use the chisel and guide block? Half blinds or through?

    I just learned how to cut dove tails... actually still being taught... I used a japanese hand saw to cut the angels then chiseled my way through... It's a long process but will be one hell of a sturdy and good looking box. What are half blinds or through? sorry new to wood working?

    Neat! The tire rack looks out of place, not bad by any means just kinda out of place. Everything else looks sweet though!

    No problem. A half blind is when you can't see the tail from the front (used on drawers and such) like below. A through is when the tail goes all the way through (hence the name). I use a Japanese hand saw for mine too. Practice definitely makes perfect for dovetails. Congrats for going the hand tool over power tool route!

    Half Blinds


    Through

    I have about 10 or so more hours in this thing... Making a couple trays to fit inside for tools, a nice lid, hinges, sanding, glueing, more sanding, and a nice marine or outdoor varnish! I don't think i could paint it after putting all that work into it... You wouldn't be able to see the craftsmanship... But if i rhino lined it... it would def look good in the back of the bed!

    Very nice work. I hoped you used a waterproof glue like Titebond III or something similar. The Rhino liner would totally cover the worksmanship, but the marine varnish would look awesome, like those wooden boats you see sometimes.

    Yan. Hell Yeah! Awesome work on that trailer. Great looking truck too.

    Funny looking tire-rack but it's all good! (why not just keep the tire under the truck?)
