This tool chest is made from white oak and walnut. It’s a favorite of mine because I see it every day in my workshop. Hardest part was the drawers [aren’t they always?]. Finished with tung oil. First learned about tung oil watching David Marks tv shows, and I really like the stuff. Hope you enjoy.

That looks stout, yet with the fit and finish of fine furniture.

Well done.

Great tool chest. Love David Marks. I met him a few years ago. He’s really a great guy, very down to earth and easy to talk to. I wish you had shown more photos. Did you make through tenons for the horizontal dividers between the drawers? Keep posting.
Cheers

Great project, I would also like some construction details and in progress pics if you have any. Also if you could add some dimensions that would help me visualize how big the box is. Thanks Pat

Exceptionally nice. I would make one but my wife would insist that it is hers to use to store all her sewing and quilting supplies. It is really beautiful.

Plans came from Wood Magazine. Original plan called for two drawers at the top, with a large drop-down door on the bottom concealing a tool tote inside. Scrapped the tote idea and added three more drawers to suit my own needs.
