  1. Projects In Progress
    I'm starting to outfit and organize my Farmers Tool Chest. Plan by Chris Schwarz. Solid pine with cherry battens and rotting strips on the bottom. Built using rabbets, Titebond, and cut nails. Bottom is tongue and groove solid pine affixed with screws. Hardware from Lee Valley. Paint: General...
  2. Baby anarchists tool chest

    My version of Chris Schwarz's tool chest. I replicated certain aspects of it by just viewing others chests , the exact dimensions however are my own. It is made of pine and has a cedar panel for the lid. I made this chest around a year and half ago so my tools have been upgrades significantly...
  3. Joiner's Toolchest

    Yes, another one of those Chris Schwarz followers. It's the Traveling Anarchist Toolchest, with a few tweaks - I did not nail on the bottom boards, they're dadoed. It was originally intended to transport my tools overseas so I had to make the bottom sturdy. I'm cheating a bit, as I have...
  4. My Anarchists Tool Chest, Finally, Almost, will never really be complete... but a slow continuation

    So here we start with 4/4 poplar, some of it was planned out for me by the mill, some I had to go at it with a plane. I use a No. 6 with a 8" radius blade as my jack, 22" Sargent jointer, and a No 4 LN with a high angle frog (this is not ideal to use with softwoods, I'll pickup my coffin or No...
  5. Tool chest / long-term tool storage

    1 year ago, I had to move across the country and I knew that I would not have a workshop for 8 to 10 months. At the same time I was reading Christopher Schwarz's 'Anarchist tool chest' and, although I was not sold 100% to the idea of working from a tool chest, I figured that it would at least be...
  6. Anarchist Tool Chest...in a Weekend

    Hello all! I've made a few posts, but mostly I've just been a lurker. However, I wanted to share my latest project with everyone. I made a version of the Anarchist's Tool Chest….in a weekend. I kept track of my time, and I had 15 hours of construction time in this, not including the...
  7. Craftsman Bed

    Hey Guys, I made this Craftsman style bed for my wife and I last winter. It was a big step up from a matress on the floor! I use plainsawn red oak for my Craftsman projects because white oak doesn't grow in my part of the world. (Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada) I suppose I could order it...
  8. Anarchist's Traveling Tool Chest

    My primary hand tool storage area had been the lower shelf under my workbench. As my meager hand tool collection began to grow slowly, I felt the tools needed a better home. I read Christopher Schwarz's "The Anarchist's Tool Chest" about a year ago, and loved the philosophy presented, as well...
  9. Beau's Chest

    I made this for my son who will be turning 2 in March. The dimensions are based on the anarchist tool chest plans. It's all white pine, very light. Dovetailed the carcass, mitered the skirt, shiplapped the bottom, and breadboarded the top. Torsion hinges for the mechanical. Paint is NYPD blue...
  10. Designing Woodworking Projects
    All, I am brand new here. I have been reading for some time and have gained great knowledge from you all. I have searched for this specific question but I haven't had any luck in finding any thing. I am getting ready to build builtin's for my new home. We have moved in and this is one of...
  11. Focus on the Workspace
    I'm new to hand tool work and recently moved to a home with a smaller shop in it - 16'x10'. So now I'm fighting which bench design do I think I'll want and after reading and reviewing countless articles, blogs, and videos I've realized many people don't say why they chose one form over another...

    Design and Materials Hello. I have decided to start work on my new chest tool. I am not sure when I will get around to starting the build, but I have got the design and materials ready for when it comes time to begin. I bought the book by Chris Schwarz "The Anarchist's Tool Chest" back in the...
  13. Blogs
    Getting started. I have been thinking for a while that it was time to finally make a real woodworking workbench. I have been using my assembly/outfeed table as a workbench and even added a quick release face vise and some dogs but it just is not great for work holding when using hand planes...

    The Anarchist's Anarchist Tool Chest Yes, there's supposed to be two "anarchists" in the title. Perhaps I'm confused. I've read a bit about the anarchist's tool chest. I started with a tool chest similar to the common anarchist's tool chest, though at the time I didn't know I was an anarchist...
  15. Focus on the Workspace
    I have not read The Anarchist's Tool Chest, I have seen The Woodwright's Shop episode on same but last night I went to see Schwarz give a presentation and show off his new Dutch tool chest. I like Schwarz because he puts a lot of time and thought into how he works but what works best for one...
