    Tool Chest

    A lot of you have probably already seen this. It's from the New Yankee Workshop.

    Hey, this could be our next swap!

    You probably want it full of tools too
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    I never get tired of seeing this tool box.

    It would be about a 10 year build for me.

    Don't know if it's still available, but Fine Woodworking online used to offer a picture of that tool chest for use as computer wallpaper (for Windows users, at least. I have it on one of my laptops.

    I saw that chest in person when it was on display at the Smithsonian. I stared and stared and just tried to soak it all in.

    One thin I have to say though, it bugs me that Norm was touching metal tools, like the Stanley #1, bare handed, then put it back without so much as a wipe. Then again, I'm jealous that he got to touch it at all.

    There is a story goes with the chest, that when Mr. Studley passed on, he left the chest to a friend, who had 2 sons. One got a 50 something Chevy, the other the tool chest - and they swapped em for each others item. I think it's a true story. Last I heard, the son who owned it sold it to a collector for an undisclosed amount, who then loaned it to the Smithsonian.
