  1. Power Tool Chest

    This is the anarchist's power tool chest, if there is such a thing. The inspiration for this project came from perusing internet photos of actual anarchist's tool chest photos. Currently the majority of my tools require electricity. And up until recently all these tools took up a massive amount...
  2. Tool chest ? ....

    The chest is made out of cedar, salvaged from an old corner cabinet disassembled 20 years ago when we moved to our current house. Fortunately I kept the lumber in the attic for all this time. I have been researching for a tool chest since a couple of months ago. (I don´t know why surfing the...
  3. The Mahogany Madness Machinist Chest!

    LOTS of pics/reading to follow just FYI Video is here if you prefer not to read. View on YouTube This project is one that took a while to complete. Arguably the hardest part of it was just finding the time to build while working full time and being married! I had wanted a sort of "bench...
  4. The Sma' Kist (can be fitted up as a tool chest)

    The sma' kist is the sixth project in the Lethenty Mill furniture making course and it is one that attracts a lot of interest. In this project, I suggest that the top of the kist is dry jointed. The top of the original sma' kist (on which I based this design) had split - this almost always...
  5. 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...
  6. Timberframe Mobile Toolchest

    My brother in law was considering building a small shed in the side of his sloped acre in Alaska. I had enough spare tools that I decided to make him a timbrerframe tool chest in case he wanted to go a more old timey route on the build. It is poplar, about 24×16 x 14. I made a mechanism that...
  7. Toolchest from scrap wood.

    I just finished a toolchest from reclaimed wood! The wood was a mix of red and white oak from dunnage and skids that I've gathered over the years. I've also made a video footage of the build that yo can see following this link
  8. Attempt at a 14th Century Japanese Toolchest

    Most of the Japanese toolchests I make follow the pattern established by Toshio Odate, which makes them very traditional, but very modern. So what were Japanese toolchests like in the medieval period? Similar in some ways, but a lot less sophisticated. In the fourteenth century illustrated...
  9. Middle Tool Chest Riser

    A long time ago I went looking for a middle tool chest riser for my short Husky toolchest, but I couldn't find one. I decided to build my own. After building the basic "box" the project stalled for about a year and filled up with junk. This January I got around to building the drawers and...
  10. Tool Chest "Old is New," One Year in the Making

    SPECS Timeframe: Jul 2012 - Sep 2013 Wood Used: Reclaimed White Pine and Walnut, Misc. Other Woods from the Rack Galoot Index: Maybe a 7 on a 10 point scale? Hard to recall, but it was much handwork but also RAS and tablesaw when I needed either of those. Cost: $60 for the box, $41 for the...
  11. Maple and Walnut Hanging Tool Chest

    This is the second project I built with the patient help of my brother in law who used this project to teach me a whole lot about handtool woodwork.
  12. Japanese Tool Chest

    Stuck closely to Toshio Odate's article in American Woodworker: https://books.google.ca/books?id=vPYDAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA1&source=gbs_toc&hl=en#v=onepage&q&f=false Attached the battens with screws from the underside, otherwise square nails everywhere else and glue for the handle pieces. My local...
  13. Dutch Toolchest

    I built the Anarchist's Toolchest, but realized how quickly the lid became a place to store things when closed (I share space in a shop so I usually put whatever I was working on on top of it at the end of the day to free up bench space for others, then had to move it all the next day to get...
  14. Anarchist's Tool Chest

    My dog, Cassie, died the day I purchased the wood for the body of the chest. When I finished it, I burned her name into the lid. She was an absolute sweetheart so I thought it would be a good way to remember her. I learned so much from Chris Schwarz's book, The Anarchist's Toolchest and refer...
  15. Rotary-tool toolbox / toolchest

    I made this project last year. I didn't post it yet, so here it is. I've learnt a lot of lessons after I finished this box. - Pine is soft, so take care of bumps etc. - Be carefull with glue-excess. (you can see a big spot!!) - try to experiment with different Woods - simple knobs/pulls can...
  16. Tool Tote w/ Copper and Brass Accents

    The last picture of the 'Gang of Six' above shows one half of the challenge, with unused toolchest space being the other. You see, my toolchest is on the small side, and the area in front of the sliding tills has always been waiting for "something" to go there that'd enhance utility. Combine...
  17. The 1839 School Chest (Small dovetailed tool chest)

    More details and a link to the plans can be found here This is the School Chest as described in the book "The Joiner and the Cabinet maker" (Lost Art Press) This is all handtool work done in clear air dried pine i picked up at a local mill. The finish is Old Fashioned Milk Paint in the...
  18. Tool Chest

    This chest is a graduation gift for my son. It is made with mahogany, maple and walnut. The finish on the mahogany is Watco Teak Oil. For some reason the Teak Oil did not get this particular mahogany to the deep rich color I was looking for. I used The Anarchist's Daughter's wax and it...
  19. A Boys Tool Chest

    Well this is the conclusion to the set of toy tools I have been making for my little one for Christmas. The whole package kinda took on a life of it's own and I may have gone a bit over the deep end with it but I am stoked and I know he will love this. This is a small version of the Anarchist...
  20. Milk painted chest

    I built this with the help of my 4 year old, Madeline. She helped saw dovetails, and also helped during the glue-up. It is her toy box, and (I hope) later to be her "off to Stanford U" box. I wish I could find good looking soft-close lid hardware. Everything available I can find is plastic and...
