Probably the most famous tool cabinet in the world.
The guy was a piano maker.
He has a cool bench too.

This is the Studley(sp?).
It was featured years ago in Fine Woodworking magazine.

This is like what Everest is to mountain climbing.

They even had posters and I think puzzles made when this was first found.

That is incredible! It fits toghether like a puzzle, but there is no space for new tools! The ultimate woodworking sin: to assume that you have every tool you will ever need.

It looks very cool, but it doesn’t seem like it will would be the easiest to use. Also, as drew said, if you want to add anything you can’t which doesn’t seem the best either…

I’ve seen posters of this tool chest in Fine Woodworking several years back, in fact they offered a large poster of it for awhile but I never knew how many layers and secret compartments till I watched this video.
