Hard to think of anyone who owns all those tools buying a chest for THAT price….... unless they just like to buy things and don’t actually use them….

The $11,000 price tag actually does include the tools. But I’m not sure why anyone wants 4 crank drills.

I like the recommendation to buy the “Furniture Wall Bumpers” to go along with the tool chest, bumping the price up that much more…..
While significantly smaller, I’ll stick with my own modest tool chest, made from my favorite kind of lumber…..FREE. And I got to select which tools I wanted to put inside. (Not always an easy job as most of you know) I think most of us here would rather make our own tool chest and customize it to our needs.
Hey, What’s wrong with having four “crank drills”....? (Braces….?) If you think FOUR are excessive, you don’t WANT to see what’s hanging on a rafter in MY garage…..... Most were inherited or given to me as gifts….. They do get used depending on the project.

This tool chest is for four people to share since there is four of everything in it.

Did you notice the “Customers Ultimately Bought” window at the right side bar?
The storage cabinets on that list price from $88 to $320. That’s a big step up from there to $2199
