This is the first time I’ve seen a video on it… just still pictures to this point…

Very impressive… as expected…

Are you going to make your own design, now?

I believe he has more tools neatly fit into that small cabinet than I have spread out on two 10 foot long shelves in my workshop. Amazing. Thanks Gary.

I’ve seen the pictures, but they don’t give it justice like the video does. Amazing.

great fine Gary. took Mr. Studley many revisions, and many years to build this thing… one step at a time. one impressive build indeed.

Great toolcase. How much thinking must have gone into making it. Thanks for making it available for us to see.

It’s so great to see it in motion! I’ve had this poster on my office wall at work for much of this year, bought from Taunton when it went on sale, which was the first time I’d ever heard about it, or Mr. Studley. I didn’t know how incredibly heavy it was, that it was specific to work on pianos, nor what the outside looked like. Did he have 2 people heip him bring it places, or some kind of wheeled cart?

Btw, there are wallpapers of this thing at the link, if anyone wants to jazz up their computer backgrounds.
