Picture of Build Your Own Toolbox

This Instructable shows you how to build your own toolbox.  The one I built is for kids, but it could also function as a window planter if you drilled some drain holes or a storage box.   Regardless of what you use it for, it is a simple weekend project that will allow you to have fun with the kids and use power tools!!!

Step 1: Gather Materials
