Over the years, I have made plenty of Blanket Chests/Toy Boxes.
Wondering out loud IF one could be modified into a hand tool chest? Maybe have a few drawers added to the bottom, ala the Dutch did?
The top “drawer” on this one is a fake, only the bottom two work. Maybe add a few more levels of drawers? Saw till in the lid? Plane till inside the top? Wood could even be just good old pine? Maybe scrounge enough Barn wood to make a chest, again?
Like this one? Used to be old rafters in a “Carriage House/Garage” that fell down. Reclaimed lumber might work, IF I can find enough. if not, well, I have made over 130 chests-of-drawers using just common pine…
Looking more for a few ideas…..
Notes: Have about 10 handsaws to put away, mostly in the Panel saw sizes. 22 hand planes, but all but one is under 18” long. Nice drawer full of chisels, and enough other stuff to fill a few drawers. Mainly, this will house the handtools of the Dungeon Shop, already have places for the powered stuff…
