Note: The chest is sold and I have a waiting list of six people if that deal falls through. Thanks everyone!
I have a new tool chest I’d like to sell – if you are in driving distance of Fort Mitchell, Ky., and would like to come get it, let me know at email@example.com.
It is a full-size chest I just completed for a DVD shoot with Popular Woodworking Magazine. It’s 25” tall (including the casters), 39-3/4” long and 26” deep. It has three sliding tills. This chest is made from birch plywood and poplar and is screwed together, but everything is plugged and painted to look like a traditional tool chest. It is totally solid and fully functional.
The hardware is all home-center stuff that I stripped the zinc off of. The lid is hinged with three steel butts. The lifts are steel utility-grade items. The casters are cast metal – the same ones I have on my regular chest. The chest is painted black with General’s “Milk Paint.”
I’m looking to recoup only the cost of materials. Price $200.
I do not wish to pack and ship this chest – hence the cash and carry. The first person to say “I want it and will come get it” gets it.
