This turn-of-the-century tool chest made from riftsawn oak is as useful for storing tools today as it was 100 years ago.
From the basic measuring and marking implements to your favorite hand tools, this chest will keep everything in its place. You can also see why the design is a classic. The case features finger-joint construction and a frame and panel back and front. These elements, combined with the vintage hardware, lend authenticity to the antique appearance.

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.
