My take on the anarchist tool chest, out of plywood. I added an additional removable saw till for the smaller saws and such. Nothing fancy, seen em on here before, but I figured I would post it anyway :)

Plywood was free, hardware was in the realm of 30-40 dollars.

Nice chest, Henry. I like the unique, removable till’s handle design in particular.

Looks like it was meant for work! Great job, +1 on Smitty’s comment for saw till. Have the book but time and priority’s are a challenge!

The chest looks good Henryk. I too especially like the tills.
