Greetings fellow LJ’s,
This is my third time moving and reorganizing my hand tool chest. I needed some space in my small workshop, so I tried to cram in, as much as possible.
After reading “A cabinet makers notebook,” by Mr. Krenov, I was inspired to make something really beautiful, but with 2 little kids and work etc….I just had to put everything away.
I was thinking about adding another set of “doors” on top of the cabinet to give me some more space. I’m not really happy with the layout. It works ok. I can get to everything without hurting myself, or tools falling off.
Any suggestions, links to photos, or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
p.s. I am pretty familiar with the Studley tool chest and interestingly enough, I read that it took two men to carry that case around and I am assuming he used it with the chest on the floor. All the pics we see are with the tool chest hanging up. I wonder what his shop looked like.
Anyways…I look forward to hearing from you all.
Thanks for looking.
God Bless.
