The Duluth Trading Company offers a beautifully crafted wood toolbox for those of us who weren’t fortunate enough to inherit one from our grandfathers. While the weight of a wood toolbox can make it impractical to lug around, this could be the perfect solution for those of us who out of habit, convenience or necessity keep a stash of tools in an accessible and very visible spot in our homes.
The line drawing on their website doesn’t come close to showing you its furniture-quality beauty and craftsmanship — with finger-jointed corners and antique brass cornerpieces — so I asked a fellow houseblogger, StuccoHouse, if I could use the pictures they took which show how it really looks.
This toolbox includes a removable, partitioned tray above the main storage compartment and a small corkboard mounted inside the lid for notes. All hardware is made of antique brass, and the exterior dimensions are 24″ long by 9-1⁄2″ wide by 10″ deep. The currently listed sale price is $125.
