Hey Buddy, Wanna Buy a Tool Chest?


The owner of the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking is selling the tool chest that I built during a class there earlier this month.

The chest is built from clear Eastern white pine. The carcase and skirts are completely dovetailed. The bottom boards and battens are attached with cut nails.

The lid is a mortise-and-tenon frame with a dovetailed dust seal around it.

The carcase of the chest is painted in black milk paint (three coats) and ready to go. The lid is glued up and the dust seal needs to be leveled to the lid. Then it can be painted. The dimensions are as per “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” – about 24″ x 24″ x 40″. It’s a full-size chest, not a traveling version.

The interior is empty. No tills or dividers.

If you are interested in buying the chest and can pick it up at the school in Manchester, Conn., send an e-mail to Bob Van Dyke at Bob Van Dyke at bobvandyke@sbcglobal.net.

Price: The best offer over $500.
