Now that the holiday season is over and the Christmas presents are completed (with 2 hours to spare) I’ve got some time again to do some posting. Here’s my brother’s gift for this year. The classic Craftsman Pride Tool Chest done in Black Walnut …. something tells me that he might not be using it for a tool chest

Yeah, Chris… I can’t see chunking the old tools into this one. Beautiful work!

Did you put handles on the sides so he can care it to my car?? ;-)

Nice design and I love the wood choice. Very nice job.

That is really nice. Do you have a link to the plans?

I want to make something very similar to that for my dad. Every time we saw a lathe (metal) at a garage (lawn) sale he would look whistfully at it, but being on the pension he was not able to afford it. So this year I bought him one. I also purchased him a lot of tools. – thinking ahead I photo copied them so I can make fitted slots for him when I make similar tool chest. I had not seen one I like till now.

Once again a really really nice piece.

Congratulations on a fine job! The walnut is just gorgeous. My brother sure didn’t get anything like that, and I hope he’s not browsing the site here! Thanks for sharing.

Great work on all three, this “tool” box is excellent. Still on my list of things to make. Welcome.
