Antique style chest dimensions: 19-3/4" long by 10-3/4" wide by 9-5/8" high.

The tool chest shown above is a reproduction of an antique tool chest of unknown age and origin. The chest can be built in a variety of woods. To see a larger version of the chest scroll down the page.

 Build your own tool chest. The plans price is $40.00 in the USA. The antique version of the tool chest is a good beginners woodworking project in that it features just three dovetail pins per corner. The larger version of the tool chest is a more advanced level project. To purchase the tool chest plans/manual click on the above contact me button. The tool chest plans/CD manual covers the build of both the antique and larger versions of the chest.

This reproduction of the tool chest was built from Monterey Pine with a Cherry wood chest lid insert panel. The tray was built from Poplar then stained.

The antique tool chest is a portable chest that can be carried by one person. The chest can have other uses. One of my customers keeps some of her business papers in a version of the chest. Another version, intended as a sailboats tool chest has never left the owners living room.

The larger version of the chest is shown below. This version has room for two removable tool trays. This is a work bench chest that would probably not be moved very often. The chest show was built from Monterey Pine and Red Oak and is now used to store sewing supplies.
