Build an Inlaid Tool Chest with Glen Huey
Nothing says more about a woodworker's abilities and attributes than his or her tool chest, the quintessential woodworking project. How you keep and store your tools is a reflection on your work. During this week long class, you'll create that identity. Begin by building your chest using the highest quality joinery, including hand-cut dovetails and mortise-and-tenon joints. The case front pivots then lifts and glides into the case to reveal storage drawers built using 18th-Century period construction techniques. This tool chest "pops" with outstanding surface ornamentation. The case sides are inlaid with shop-made sand-shaded corner fans and banding and the drawer fronts feature a matching string inlay. The case front reflects Federal period inlay with oval panels bordered by twin contrasting stringing set in veneered fields.
