Good job. I've seen this in that magazine as well. We can never have enough drawers.

This must be wonderful for all the little things we don't know where to put in the workshop.
Thank you for sharing with us,
Best thoughts,

If the one one your profile picture are not one you made yourself, then it's time to change dream to reality.

Hi all,

My avatar is one I recently restored, it`s a vintage 30`s black leatherette orginally built by Gerstner & Sons.

The Woodsmith chest was built by a client of mine and modeled after a turn of the century mission style Union Chest Works Co. box from Rochester NY. The company was founded in 1893. They also made ammunition boxes for world war I

If your planing to build one here`s a link to the WS sources page.

I often wondered why the plan hasen`t been avaiable on PDF yet.

I learned recently that the plan is now being featured in the current issue of the Australian Woodsmith magazine, Issue 79 . It looks to be edited a bit. The chest is showen on the front cover as opposed to the back on the US copy.

I`v been told that the plan is the metric version.

For the Jocks down under !

Nicely done. I started a blog on this project earlier this year, but my wife got me into a bathroom (2)remodeling job and it got put to the side. It's still in my shop waiting to be finished, I just gotta find the WS issue #183 and order the hardware.

Dock,

There you are, wondering where you were. I`v been watching your blog, of coarse! There is 78 wooden parts to each chest. I had a customer that built 10 chests, one each for all his grandsons. He said he had 780 parts laid out all over his shop. Can y`all imagine that.

Tiz the season for gift giving ! Don`t be late

Hope you find your magazine. If you don`t here`s a direct link for the hardware kit http://machinistchest.com/site/product_details.php?category_id=56&item_id=33
