That’s Awesome, I saw that years ago, and completely forgot about it. If I ever goit that organized I think my wife would have a heart attack :)

Thanks for posting this Dale, I have seen this chest in photos, but it was much more ingenious than thought with those swinging storage units, etc. Amazingly well organized and the tools were just as amazing.

The amount of tools in such a small box is simply amazing. That is more hand tools than I could ever imagine owning, but if I did, it would probably take up a pretty good section of wall to store

That was a work in progress for 30 years. But it is very nice.

There have been lots of articles about this tool chest. Christopher Schwarz is in the process of creating a book about it, due sometime in 2013.

I marvel every time I see this cabinet – the level of craftsmanship is just, well, words fail me.
I guess I’m going to have to start saving my pennies for that book.
