My avatar is one I recently restored, it`s a vintage 30`s black leatherette orginally built by Gerstner & Sons.
The Woodsmith chest was built by a client of mine and modeled after a turn of the century mission style Union Chest Works Co. box from Rochester NY. The company was founded in 1893. They also made ammunition boxes for world war I
If your planing to build one here`s a link to the WS sources page.

I often wondered why the plan hasen`t been avaiable on PDF yet.
I learned recently that the plan is now being featured in the current issue of the Australian Woodsmith magazine, Issue 79 . It looks to be edited a bit. The chest is showen on the front cover as opposed to the back on the US copy.
I`v been told that the plan is the metric version.
