Couldn’t find exact matches for handle and hinges. These were realitively close. Happy with how it turned out.

Thank you Smitty from Smitty Cabinets for sending me measurements from your original.

Thanks Jeff.

For the first year (1923 I believe) Stanley made this tool chest exclusively from Black Walnut. In subsequent years they switched to less expensive hardwoods and finished them with dark stain.

That’s outstanding. I really like everything about it, the wood, the hinges and all the other hardware.
