Feats of Woodworking: Studley Toolchest

I was reminded by this post from Boing Boing of the incredible 19th Century toolchest made by Massachusetts piano maker Henry O. Studley.


Wow.



Here's an article from Fine Woodworking about the restoration of the chest. Look at the comments in the Boing Boing post for references to more articles and the poster available from The Taunton Press.

Thanks, Boing Boing!

Oh my goodness. No kidding wow.

Very steampunk. Even though it's functional, it would look gorgeous hung on a wall.

The other incredible thing is that he made it without power tools. Also, he probably made a lot of the tools himself.
