Tool chest from the November-ish issue of Wood magazine. I made a few changes. Fun project and will be very useful. Solid ash for frame and drawer fronts. Due to shortage of ash plywood i used hickory ply for the cabinet, i thought it matched pretty well. Joints on legs and runners is a half lap. Finished with a few coats of BLO.

Very nice chest, like it. Excellent execution and wood and grain choice. I made big storage case in my garage and used the same handles ;-)

Very nice build, looks like that will serve You well in the shop. I really like that it has a work surface that can be used for secondary work or tool station when needed, thanks for posting ! Solid job well done.

I like it. Drill a row of hole in the top and get a Veritas Wonder Dog and you’ll have yourself a nice mini planing bench!

That’s a nice tool cabinet. It looks sturdy and has plenty of storage.
