“One thing I strongly object to — this is the use of inlaying and such extravagances on tool chests; they should be made well, strong, and convenient, so as to last a lifetime, being for use, not for show.”
— A Practical Joiner, “The Woodworker” magazine, February 1902

There is lots of information in those old Woodworker Magazines. Glad you are getting into the book. It was great meeting you at Woodworking in America.
"I have been working on a new book since February that recently came into perfect focus. To complete the book, I need to sell all of these excess tools. But I cannot say more than that at this point because I am still in negotiations with the book."
hrmmm, all the tool sales are to finance a book about tool chests? (seems like Peanut butter to the jam (workbench books)… or possibly the tool sales are to thin the heard, so all your kit fits in one chest like the masters of old?
Alright Google is letting me down. How can I find copies of "The Woodworker" magazine? Most of my searches lead to a much newer magazine with a similar title.
Josh – The Woodworker magazine started publishing in England in 1901 and is still going strong. You can sometimes find older copies through sites like http://www.abebooks.com
