For Christmas this year my son Tyler requested some tools since he has moved out of the house. So I decided to make the Chris Schwarz style Dutch tool chest to hold them. Unfortunately it will not contain wood working tools but good old handy-around-the-house tools. Made from white pine, I used the Popular Woodworking article from Schwarz for the plans, painted hunter green with Boy Scout emblems (Tyler is an Eagle). I also modified it by adding an upper tool tray. I have a video of the process here:
