For a long time I´v wanted to build a tool-chest for my woodworking tools.
After looking at many different ideas I found Michael Pekovich´s tool chest, which was featured in Fine-Woodworking August 2013 issue: 234.
I really liked his design and the different woodworking techniques it takes to build the chest. I also liked that every tool had it´s own place. So I choose to built it.
It was enjoyable to build this chest from start to finish, especially trying to make it as close to the original as possible. The only big difference is that mine is made of Swedish/American ash, and European walnut. I also installed brass escutcheons, and organised my tools differently.
If your interested in building it you can buy the plans at http://www.tauntonstore.com/essential-tool-chest-digital-plan-065150.html
The supplied Sketchup model sped up the build for me (was easier to convert inches to millimeters).
