Probably the most famous tool chest of all times and certainly one of the best organized and filled as well.

H.O. Studley… of the best craftsman of that era.
And judging from that toolbox… of the most OCD too. You’d have to be to keep a toolbox stocked such a manner. Every nano-millimeter of space is occupied.
What did this guy do when he discovered he needed an additional tool in that box? Must have caused nightmares.

It’s a good video and a great tool chest and it’s wonderful that it has been preserved for woodworkers and all people to wonder over.
