Grandpa's Tool Chest

It's hard to beat an original. This is a true-to-detail reproduction of a classic tool chest design.

Although the design follows a fairly standard pattern, the compact size of this chest gives it a leg up. You get all the traditional features — solid-wood construction, a sliding inner till, and showy details — without the extra bulk. And despite the chest's stylish appearance, you'll find the construction is very down to earth. The secret is to combine a few simple design tricks, some very basic joinery, and a dose of careful craftsmanship.
