Another Tool Chest

I built a Tool Chest for my wife’s Uncle a few months back, and decided I needed one as well. The Chest is built out of Ash PW with Ash Hardwood Drawer fronts. I used some Cherry for the drawer boxes and Maple for the drawer guides. The drawers are lined with felt, as are the Dado’s on the guides. I used box joints on the drawers and miter joints on the lid. It was a fun project. Thanks for looking.

Love the build. I always love working with Ash.

Very nice! As a matter of fact, this thing looks so nice that I would be afraid to use it out of fear of scratching it! Love it!

I’m envious. There’s just something about tool boxes – challenge, satisfaction, pride of workmanship I guess. I have a really nice one in birch that I purchased. I don’t need another but I still want to make one – just to say I did.

@TexasNick—You could put a Gerstner label on your project and no one would question it—well executed. I like that you lined the drawer glides with felt too. I’d bet the drawers are smooth and very quiet. Do you have a source for the plans for this beautiful tool chest?

Thanks for the comments. Don, I didn’t use any plans. I just kinda built it to suit my needs. Yes, the drawers are very smooth. That was actually done to tighten them up a little. I got carried away when sanding the rails.
