I made this chest based off of the Dutch Tool Chest design. The case itself is made of Birch Plywood, with the lid and drop front panel made of white spruce. The case sides/back/ and shelves are joined with dados and cut nails. Strap hinges for the lid were ordered from Lee Valley along with the side handles. The front is held with a hasp and lockable turn, though in the photos I have just a basic latch installed temporarily. The top compartment has a small rack to hold some basic tools as well as a holder for my combination square. The front compartment is wide enough to hold a #7 jointer and #4 smoother back to back. Total build time was roughly 10 hours. Presently there is not a finish, though I may paint it.
