Tool chest build

Hi all,
I’m almost finished with my tool chest and thought I’d write it up. Pictures in somewhat odd order thanks to discourse mobile.

The design is Christopher Schwartz’s Dutch Tool Chest - I paid a fiver for the issue of Fine Woodworking which had the plans and build detail in it. This was a big project, and had lots of new stuff in it for me - as with everything I do tend to see the errors on it but I’m pleased with how it turned out.



What wood(s) did you use?

The carcasse is 100% pine, with a strip of oak on the lid as something a bit more hardwearing. The inside of the fall front has oak batons on it, with catches made from some upcycled hardwood, and the keys are strips of walnut I happened to have handy.
