A wooden tool chest that i made out of White Oak for my specialty tooling, chucks, hand tools, mandrels, cutters and measuring devices. My original plans were to make it out of Wormy Chestnut but could not find any readily available and affordable. Basically got tired of looking and hunting for Wormy Chestnut, i needed the box relatively quickly so i went this route.
The drawers are White Oak with poplar sides.
Underneath the top, along the inside perimeter, is a section for the placement of
and a Jacob’s chuck
all tucked out of the way but remain readily accessible. The lengthy files dangle inside the cavity created between the drawer sides and the side wall of the chest.
