Project 4 – Japanese Toolbox

I made this Japanese-style toolbox just to store chisels in my own shop.

The most interesting thing about this type of box is the way the lid is being secured. Japanese people creatively came up with a latch mechanism   to lock the lid with the caress nicely. I was so fascinated by it on the first time  I saw.

Watch the video below to see how it work.
