This is my version of Andy Rayes tool chest. I have a small one car garage area to use for a shop it looked like an opportunity for a lot of storage in a small space. Almost 70% of the wood for this chest is salvaged from a local cabinet shop’s dumpster. That is the reason the grain patterns are not the best. A lot of glue ups with small boards. This was a big challenge for me and I learned a lot wile building it. I pegged all of the tenons for strength. The sides and doors are all red oak raised panels with Sapele for the drawer fronts. I also built a lot less small drawers than Andy Raye had in his. I don’t have that many chisels or carving tools. I do like using traditional tools but still rely a lot on power tools. It was about a 4 month project for me and I had a lot of fun building it The bonus is I now have room for more tools.
