Craftsman's Tool Chest
This beautiful, traditionally styled chest will make the perfect home for your most prized hand tools.
One look will tell you this wasn’t meant to be just a simple, utilitarian tool chest. Two things immediately catch your eye. The first is the wood — curly and birdseye maple enhanced by a rich, grain-popping dye. Now look past the wood and you start to notice the details. The frame-and-panel doors (and back) and all the delicate moldings give the chest a classic look. But when you open the doors and look inside, you quickly realize that tool storage is the goal here. Behind each door you’ll find a hallow recess, perfect for hanging a few often-used tools. And that’s just the start. The chest holds eleven graduated drawers that provide a spot for just about any small tool. And no doubt, other uses for this chest come to mind — jewelry, keepsakes, or a special collection. But whatever the contents, this project will hold them in style.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
