Hi to all,
I have had this awesome tool chest passed down to me and I would love to know its age and anything else interesting about it.
Family legend has it that it was made by a family member in the distant past but sadly that is ALL I know. Who or when is a mystery and details like was it made as an apprentice piece have been lost in the mists of time.
Does anyone know about these or have one similar to it? Any bits of info would be appreciated.
All I can say is it is made from pine and the hinges seem to be hand forged as they are not identical as mass produced ones are. The main dovetail joints are really very good with not a single loose one or a gap anywhere, in fact I bet the box itself would hold water.
