This a Tool Chest made entirely with hand tools at the Woodwrights School. Roy Underhill has a school and it is excellent. He is a good teacher and a prince of a guy. The wood is Southern Yellow Pine. The dog is our Briard, Baxter.

Hi Rob;

Great project. You did a really nice job.

I like working with hand tools too, but I think I would have to use those fancy power tools I have in the shop.

Hours, The class was 6 days at probably, ave 9 hr/day plus another 30 at home so around 80 hrs. The pine is fairly light, one person could carry it, but it is too long to pick up.

Roy is a wonderful guy and great teacher. He also has an excellent set of tools for each student.
