Hi AVC

I know you didn't ask for my 2 cents BUT this tool chest is a bad design :(

No sub frame support for one and the wheels are two small and in the wrong place. if you load this chest up with tools and try a move it... looks like it will fold up like a deck of cards.
One biscuit in ea. corner to hold the drawers together I don't think so,1/4" bottom on the drawers, I don't think so with no support in the center of the draw I don't think so,drawer guides back 3/4" from the front I don't think so.no top or bottom support
This would be one hvy. puppy b/4 you got the tools in it.

Again you didn't ask for my 2 cents bUT I should point out the items I see.

Bj :)

Allison, the pdf file you sent the link for IS the plan, there is nothing else. Sylvan tool works means Scott Phillips designed this chest and you most likely got it from freeplans.com or a link from thewoodworkersjournal ezine. (This is where I got my copy of it) There are much better choices for tool cabinets. I would suggest you look at plansnow.com where you will have better choices and detailed plans.

chest plans WOODSMITH

Allison,

The new issue of woodsmith magazine #183 June/July 2009 has a real nice plan for a suitcase tool chest type.

This plan was modeled after a mission style,seven drawer double panel oak with top till and felt lined

Orginally built by the Union Tool Chest Works CO. of Rochester NY. founded in 1893 The guys that set the standard in chest building.

It`s nice to see that Woodsmith is passing on a tradition and recreating our American history in the work place.
