Tool Chest

I am done the Wood Manufacturing/Cabinetmaking program at Holland College now, this was my year end project. It is a tool chest made of maple and walnut, the drawers are for all of my hand tools and the cabinets above are for various catalogs and tool instruction manuals. I enjoy having this in the shop a lot more than my old red mechanics tool boxes.

Now that’s what I call sharp-lookin’ storage.

Well done. I like the way you tied the cabinets and the chest together with the walnut accents. The hardware you chose is also very appropriate for the style of both pieces.
