Benchtop Heirloom Tool Chest

This compact and handsome storage project creates the perfect place for your small hand tools.

Building a tool chest like this is a good way to hone skills that you can use in furniture projects. In the process of building this relatively small project, you'll learn about working with veneer, cutting small parts accurately, and building smooth-sliding drawers. The payoff is a project that serves as a fitting home for the hand tools you rely on most. More than that, it's an inspiration every time you step into your shop.
