I made this toolchest from Australian Cedar so I finally have a few drawers to keep some of the tools stored where I might be able to find them! I have a pencil thief who is always in my shed and whenever I am not looking the pencils disappear. Now I have one small drawer devoted to just pencils so I reckon I have seen the last of the thief…..
There was a toolchest design in the ’”Woodsmith” magazine last year and I have used that as a guide. This unit is much larger, has many more drawers and also has the extra space with the two front doors with racks.

Wow, that is a fine looking tool box! Such a clean and crisp look to it.
Excellent design and fabrication. I am loving the contrasting wood on the doors.
Really well done, off to favorites it goes

Beautiful job on the chest. I absolutely love your choice of grain pattern in the styles. It shows you gave it the thought of a craftsman. Fantastic!

Nice tool box. From picture #5, I can see the latch for the lid, but do the front doors have a latch?

Nice joinery. And the attention to detail is not overlooked here. You can see that in the 3rd picture, where the grain patterns line up between the two doors. Great job!
