I built a version of Christopher Schwarz Anarchist Tool Chest in April of 2013. The chest was built using poplar for the main carcass and combination of Ash and Oak for the skirts.
The building process involved the use of a combination of power and hand tools. I only have a 6” jointer and 13” planer and some of the boards I used were as wide as 12”. I surface one face of the boards by hand and then ran them through the surface planner. All the dovetails were cut by hand and took me a while to complete but it was a HUGE confidence booster. I’m not intimidated by hand cut dovetails any more.
This project was a great confidence booster and I learned a lot about using hand tools.
Below are some additional pictures showcasing the interior of the chest:
