I recently completed a tool chest made from walnut and maple. It is the smaller version of the Anarchist’s Tool Chest by Chris Schwarz.

Here is a link to a few of the blog entries I made along the way.

I really like this chest and how much your jointery stands out. Did you stain the end grain differently or does it just take the stain differently? As you can see, I’m the sharpest chisel in the drawer here… :-)

Great job and thanks for posting!!

Wonderful piece there Andy.
Schwarz would be very proud.
That piece will look great in 100 years from now.
Your work is exemplary.

Absolutely spectacular!!! I’m in the “leave the marking line” camp, too. Seeing the line just delights my eyes. This is a piece to treasure.

This is a beautiful tool chest! I love the way your joinery stands out. Our carpenter forefathers would be proud!

That is beautiful, but clearly for a hobbiest. Too heavy and too nice to take on a job site. I use pelican cases that can be locked.
