Our steel toolbox with a cantilevered lid has two handy adjustable upper storage trays, eight removable dividers, and an exterior latch for up to a 4.8φ mm padlock. It is useful for art supplies, make-up, medical supplies, snacks or tea. The possibilities are endless.
We fell in love with Toyo steel boxes during a trip to Japan. A few made their way back to the U.S. with us in our suitcases and they are now found throughout Placewares' home: on desktops to hold supplies, in the utility room to hold household tools, and in dresser drawers to help keep them tidy.
The cantilevered box is hand-crafted by steel artisans in Japan from initial steel folding to final assembly steps. The maker's unique process of deep drawing on technology involves stamping and folding steel instead of cutting and seaming it, which eliminates sharp edges and creates a more sturdy, lightweight structure.
Your storage uses for our toolboxes are nearly limitless. They are handy to store stationery, watches, or small items. They can also add a nice accent to your interior too.
