I used to have a nice presentation for my students on the different kinds of storage schemes they might consider for their tool chests.
I somehow lost that presentation this year. I deleted it, overwrote it and lit it on fire I suppose.
During the last few months I’ve tried to rebuild that presentation. But until I find some free time to do that, this blog entry will suffice.
Above is a heretofore private little video I shot for a webinar on tool chests. It discusses some storage options. Also, below you will find downloads to two good historic resources you should study before dividing up the interior of your chest.
The first is from Vol. II of “Practical Woodworker,” from my personal collection.
The second is from “Spons Mechanics Own Companion,” also from my collection.
Hope these get you started. And apologies to all my students for the delay.
