Showcase cover image for Inlay Tool Chest

Project Information

I built this tool chest to hold my Lie-Nielsen inlay tools. It is made from walnut with a cherry raised panel lid. The dovetails were cut by hand and the panel was raised by hand. The hinges are 95° Brusso stop hinges.

The tool tray is removable so I can re-arrange the tools by replacing the tray. I designed the box with a deep lid so I could possibly use the lid for storage of the various cutters and pieces-parts. Either a removable box that sits inside the lid or some sort of magnetic strip to hold the small parts.

Since this is a piece of shop furniture, I went with an understated finish. I used two coats of boiled linseed oil and two coats of paste wax. A film finish would easily be damaged on the bench. The oil and wax should age well with use.

Nice shop furniture. Must agree with Wayne, I was really expecting to see something inlaid on the case.

Tony,
I like this box a lot. Nicely done, and worthy of it's contents. I also am a fan of Steve Latta's tools and methods. Nicely done.
