Fine Furniture for Tools
Tool chest combines storage and convenience while showing off its maker's skills
Steven Thomas Bunn needed a toolbox that, like the journeyman’s boxes, was an advertisement and demonstration of his capabilities. He ruled out wall-hung options and made drawers that he can remove and carry to his workbench. Here, he explains how to build the carcase and make the slide-in drawer dividers. He made a board-and-spline back to allow for seasonal movement. A detailed project plan shows all the parts and how the braced legs attach and support the frame-and-panel doors.
