Dovetail Tool Chest
This dovetailed tool chest was constructed using the plans and procedures detailed by Chris Gochnour in Fine Woodworking #169. The box is made of alder, a species that is well-suited for hand-tool work, with a top panel of redgum. It’s finished with Waterlox oil-based varnish. I made a series of removable tills for the inside to hold my hand tools.
Dimensions: 16-1/2 in. deep by 29-1/2 in. wide by 14 in. tall.
