There comes a point when you realize that dumping planes, squares, chisels, and other hand tools into some box or drawer is just plain abusive. It’s this kind of disregard that leads to nicked cutting edges, imprecise measuring tools, and time lost to disorganization. Good tools deserve a good chest built specifically to house, protect, and organize them. Here’s a chest that’s designed to accommodate a goodsized collection of common woodworking tools. Four judiciously sized drawers will hold everything from small squares and chisels to screwdrivers and smoothing planes without wasting space. Full-extension slides allow easy access to items at the rear of the drawer, and a hinged top lifts to reveal a shallow upper case at the top of the chest for tools that can remain in the open all day if you like.
