Some 80 days ago ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/42136 ), I posted the tool chest I built for my hand tools. There’ve been several changes made to it since it was completed, including:
- More planes (Veritas Bevel-Up Planes) and tools (dovetail saw, chisels, etc.) have been bought and added to the chest
- Door knobs (fake) are installed on the front
- A medallion (my signature) is installed on the side of the door
- A silica gel pack is kept there for rust prevention
Bob, a friend and a wise counsel to me, had this to say about my tool chest back then:”... but it’s one that holds disappointment in its heart. The day will certainly come when there is no more room in it for the most recent tool; then the decision must be made—do I build another and where will I put it? Or, do I remove a tool to make room for this one? Enjoy it now!” How true!
The chest is pretty crowded now; it has room for a couple more small planes or so. However, it won’t be too long before the next tool chest needs to be designed and built—perhaps, using mainly hand tools.
