As a hand tool woodworker I need a place for some, not all, of my hand tools. I got the inspiration for this build while reading about a British designer who made a hand tool cabinet in walnut. He put the price tag of £12,000 pounds on his work. I do not even come nere that figures whit this build. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture with the door open. Behind that door you will find adjustable squares, mortising chisels, but chisels and so on. Everything that you do not see on those pictures ;)
I think that the Internet sooner or later will explode because of all discussions and images that are shared of the Studley tool chest (and here comes just another one :)). Yes, Study’s tool chest it is well made. No one can disagree on that. But is it practical to work with? I don’t think so. I want my tools to be in a arms reach when I need them. I don’t like to fumble. The same about all these tool chests. Once again. Most of them is incredibly well made. But the concept or idea with a tool chest is to support a contractor with his or hers tools. Who wants to bend over just for reaching a saw if you work in a dedicated workshop?
I might got it all wrong. But this is my opinion. And since I’m a swede I tend to be neutral in discussions … :)
