Wooden Tool Box

Wooden tool boxes have been manufactured since the early 1900’s and have been searched for by  both workers and collectors for decades.

 

The original wooden tool box types were all made by hand, and many companies still manufacture them the same way they did 100 years ago. The quality is the same, if not better now.

 

Primarily these are for people that are interested in a high quality product at a great price.

 

They work and are used very much like a regular metal type of tool box, where there are up to a dozen or so drawers and every tool has its place.


The real wooden tool boxes are beautifully hand crafted and are made of a hard wood such as oak. The wood absorbs moisture so that tools remain nearly dust free and rust free inside of the draws.

 

The lining in each of the draws is felt. The felt is nice and soft to the touch so you can lay out your tools nice and neat.

The size and amount of drawers range but a pretty standard size is 14” H x 11"D x 17”W. Of course, depending on what you want, there are bigger wood tool box options with several different size drawers available to fit all your tools, such as a cantilever tool box, those that specific type is typically built with metal, and used at job sites.

With some care, these wooden tool box models can last a lifetime and beyond. Those looking for high quality true craftsmanship will love these wooden tool boxes.
