Does anyone have any information on French Fitting boxes or drawers? (I have the “Toolbox Book” but it is not enough information.) I am making a desk and want to store some of my antique tool collections.

Check out “

Thank You,

The book “Choosing and Using Hand Tools” has a small bit on French-Fitting that I thought was interesting. If the FWW link above didn’t work out for you (didn’t for me, no account), you may want to take a look at the book.

$14.00 at Amazon, it’s on pages 18, 19, and 20.
