This is a toolchest design I have been wanting to build for awhile now. My last three workshop projects, this chest, the workbench and sawhorses have all been Christopher Schwarz designs. I used shop scrap to put this chest together,birch plywood sides, cherry and poplar panels, pine bottom and back. The top is a maple panel with poplar frame. I’m just starting to arrange interior, mostly hand tools in top section and power tool storage in bottom. I plan to use this chest to carry most things needed for installs and away from home projects. The finish is medium distressing with a dye stain, spray stain,washcoat, glaze with low sheen topcoat. I’ts more of a furniture type finish, who says shop projects can’t look good anyway. I’m sure I will upgrade my handtools as I go along, so the open design can be changed easily.
