I volunteer at a alternative high school working with at risk kids. Unfortunately many of their tools are sub par and I bring in my own to work on projects and teach the kids a little. I recently taught a inner city kids how to cut dovetails. It was the first time he picked up any type of tools. Anyways I went and got lunch one day to come back and found the kids trying to figure out my planes, specifically my Veritas shooting plane.. Well we had some cherry laying around that was destined for the burn pile so I made a tool chest. It’s 22 inches deep 23 inches tall and 38 inches wide. Turned out pretty good for a thrown together chest. All it cost me was the lock and the pull rings. Box joint throughout using my Leigh jig but no sandpaper touched it. Fun project. Need to finish the inside lid after I mount a few things.

I love antique tool chests. Like a treasure chest for men.
