I did all the dovetailing by hand, thought it was a good practice for me. It took a lot of time, but I think it came out quite nice :)

Also I finished the chest with an Antique Oil, because I wanted to give the chest an older look.

Great craftsmanship on the tool chest.

Couple questions: How much does it weigh loaded up? I noticed that there are no handles on the sides of the chest. Do you just lift the tool chest under the side’s ledges?

Don Broussard: I really don’t know how heavy it is, simply because I didn’t weigh it. I must say that it isn’t light, but lifting the chest isn’t a big problem. You’re right about the handles, they are missing on the chest because I can’t find nice ones :) So the ledges on the side will do untill I found some nice black iron handles. There are also four little wheels under the chest, so it can easily be pushed in every direction.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Nice anarchist chest, like it a lot! I’m thinking of picking up that book and building one someday. Definitely a good choice on wood selection, really like the Euro Oak.

The chisel rack is quite nice. This is a particularly good example of the chest.

I am making it’s bigger brother right now, so I know what goes into it. Great work. How do you till’s slide? have any trouble getting them not to rack?

DocSavage45: Not any real modifications. The only mod I think there is the “till slide” in this chest you can just lift up the tills to remove them out of the chest.

RGtools: the tills slide perfectly. Haven’t found any trouble with that :)

Another thanks to everyone for their comments!

perfect job. You use exactly the same style as I work. I like the rustic look, and hand made dovetailing. Very well done.
