I was just looking up the H.O. Studley tool chest again and found Fine Woodworking's page on it with some images I had not seen, some additional history, and a range of sizes of free, downloadable wallpaper of a nice shot of the chest, which looks like this:

Amazing amount of storage in a small space. Ironically, if I put this on my desktop I wouldn’t be able to find my icons. It’s a pretty busy picture.

Thanks for sharing. I got it up here on my work computer. Now I can walk by it and remind myself what I would rather be doing…lol

it’s a great toolbox, and it’s nice that FWW publishes this, but I think something of that sort is just way to busy for a computer desktop.

Nice Gary.

Sharon, you should see my desktop- “busy” would be the understatement of the year.

Studley’s tool chest looks a lot better on my desk top than a bunch of icons ;-))

Make icons out of the tools in the image, then drag them back over the tools. Each tool can then be a different program.

Sharon – They don’t make that image big enough for my desktop. No one ever does :( Here’s what mine looks like as of a few minutes ago:

I thought about all the tools being icons, but how would I ever remember what they all went to?? :-))

Thanks Gary, I decided to replace the oak desktop I had with this for a while. I am guessing you have a multi-monitor set up. Nice looking desktop though.
