Constructed of Pine and Poplar with a Cypress base this tool chest measures 31” wide by 18” deep by 14” high. Has a removable saw-till and drawer unit (note the hinged lid attached to saw-till that creates a second floor/compartment between the drawer unit and saw-till), and plane compartment. Underside of lid houses my turning saw.

I really like the size and looks of this chest. Did you use old lumber or an old box as a start?

Sam, I guess you could say I used “old” lumber … pieces/parts hidden here and there around the shop! The pine was part of a large order I got from Badger Hardwoods of Wisconsin to build Jefferson boxes back in the ‘90s.

Jim, I can get just about everything see in and on the wall cabinet(s) at my workshop photos. And if you don’t mind, I think I’m gonna steal your dowel/stick storage design … thanks!

Thanks, Charles … and by the way you have a killer shop space … way too many power tools for my taste; BUT, a killer space nonetheless!

Awesome work! I love the rugged, utilitarian look – I may have to steal your design!

Thanks, Martin … it was built to hold tools, not sit in an art gallery … LOL!

By the way I really like your TV Stand ... great job … it could be used to hold the TV at the art gallery!

Thanks again, guys! Unfortunately she sits empty and unused now, as I have all of my tools hanging on the wall …

... perhaps it’s time for a back-up set (??)
