This project has been on my must build list for a while. I have viewed Tommy Mac videos's a few times, but I did not fully understand what was involved. Then I got a chance to meet Tommy and handle the Tool Chest in person at WIA in November. This helped me to fully understand what was involved in building this chest.
I have written a couple of blog entries describing the build in more detail.
The Chest is Cherry and the pulls are cast iron, and the drawers are lined with green leather. The carcase is made from a single board to give continuous grain around the box. The project was featured in the Dec 2012 Popular Woodworking; I did not follow those plans too closely as I built the box the size I wanted, l altered the drawer layout and built the insides to fit the box I built.
I am very please with how this turned out, it will have a place of honour on my bench for many years to come.
