N.B. We are building a toolbox, but it is about the joinery techniques, these will make a great gift if you have no need for the box.

Held in Strathalbyn, South Australia, If you have been working by hand for a while, have a good hand saw and mark out skills, you will enjoy this course, you will build a Toolbox to house the course core tools we use in the school. All about dovetails this will complete the Skills Series, enabling you to go from project to project smoothly and with confidence, finding new skills to add to those you have been practicing, as with any learning process your development will be smoother as you use your existing experiences to master those new skills, and here's the point, it will enhance the fun you have along your journey.

A little different from the original Deneb Puchalski toolbox

  • The four side parts are intended to be joined with sturdy through dovetails; this is a robust joint, but if you feel intimidated we can switch to rebated joinery.
  •  
  • The bottom boards are tongued-and-grooved and attached front to back to the box to cope with a higher load;  a dovetailed skirting board top and bottom creates the fold that covers the top and bottom of the box, these are placed to add extra support to the box side joinery.
  •  
  • The solid box top, that is attached with hinges, has a strip along three sides that are mitered at the corners; and reinforced by Japanese wooden nails preventing the top from warping and there is a rebate protecting the contents of the box against dirt and dust
  •  
  • Depending on the stage of work, you can attach handles (we use spring back steel handles, they are more compact) or adapt the interior design (mountings, additional removable boxes, etc.) individually to accommodate your own tools

All materials will be supplied. 

 we are limited to 6 per class
