  My 3 year old son loves to help me work on/fix my truck, my car, things around the house, his bike, etc.  I was at the local swap meet over the weekend and picked him up a 1/4" drive ratchet, some 1/4" drive sockets, a few small wrenches, small screwdriver, etc. that are, as he puts it, "Just my sizes".  I decided I wanted to make him a new tool box to go along with it.  My brother is quite the woodworker, so I have a nice shop and tools to work with, and scraps of some pretty swanky exotic wood to dig through.  
  Here is the result, made from walnut, oak, pine, poplar, and real mahogany:

  Thanks for looking  Grin

What a special tool box! I'm sure he's very happy to get to carry it around and show it off. I suspect he'll have that for years to come.

It's really lovely. I'd actually like to put flowers in it Smiley.

How Lovely

I'm sweet... Like too much sugar in your tea

Love the walnut, and looks sturdy enough to stand up to 3-year old play!  Smiley

Great work, man, as always!

Inspiration without application is moot.

Wow that box is sweet. My son made one for me years ago similar to that and I still use it to tote my tools around.
