That is beautiful. What are the dimensions? How did you line the drawers? Is the back a solid pice? How do you keep the front panel down – any kind of latch or gravity? (I am wondering for when you move the box)

Thank you all. As to Kookaburra’s questions:
The dimensions are about 17” H x 18” W by 27” L. Designed from the inside out – a #7 jointer and router plane fit in the bottom drawer and a 24” rule fits comfortably in any of the full width drawers.The drawers just have rug skid mats from the hardware store although some buy a roll of thin cork.The back is a multi piece T lap. I have a picture in my LJ blog of the back of a chest of drawers that has the same style back.The lid is held in place on the bottom with brass table pins and on the top with a piano lock.

What a beautiful job. This is something you will use your whole woodworking life. It will inspire you to do the same with your other projects. Did you build from the Fine Woodworking plans? Were the dimensions true to the plans?I took a class from someone who went to North Bennett School and his chest was behind him all the time. Everyone in the class made comments about it and expressed desire to build one. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Ken. I’m looking forward to using it for a long time to come. I made this toolbox in my second semester at North Bennet (my third starts in a few weeks). I can’t say much about the FWW article. At school everyone drafts his or her own to personal specifications based on our current and anticipated tools. As I mentioned in another comment, I designed mine so that the bottom drawer is deep enough for a router plane and wide enough for a #7 jointer plane. A 24” rule fits in any of the three full width drawers. Thanks again. I’m happy to answer any more questions.

Didn’t realize you went there. Lucky you. I’ll definitely be following your projects. Good luck in school and in the future.
