This is a tool chest that I made in the memory of my Dad. When he died he left me some walnut wood and some of his tools. So I wanted to use the wood in a special way, after much thought and deliberation I decided on a tool chest. And I had very little wood left when I finished. I made it almost entirely with Kreg pocket screw joinery, even the drawers. I do plan on upgrading the drawer slides as I have the money to.

Great tribute to your dad.
I really like the drawer pulls in particular, but the whole piece is great. Nicely done.

Nice job I truly believe a tool chest in a wood shop should be made of wood.

Great job on the tool box and it will be a lasting tribute to your dad you will treasure your lifetime and someone else beyond. I like the pulls and the grooving in the styles. Neat.

Very cool box and a nice tribute. Now you just need to replace that top metal one with a matching piece!

Definite eye catcher! My tools are really envious. :<) Great memorial! Is the contrasting wood maple? It would be in my office. LOL!
