Instant Tool Chest Update

Just a quick update on Kolya’s Christmas tool chest.  I painted it red first, then slathered on a coat of black.  Tonight I scuffed the edges with some worn 220 grit paper, then rubbed the whole thing out with steel wool and danish oil.  I’ll probably go over the outside once more with the danish oil to improve the sheen, then wax it and re-install the hinges.

I’ve put together a nice kit of tool to go in it, including a small hammer, block plane, coping saw and some other essentials.  This was a fun, simple project and I think it will make a great present.
