This traveling tool box is designed to hold your essential hand tools, keeping them close at hand on a benchtop or countertop and tucking away easily when not in use.
This elegant, compact chest is designed to keep all of your favorite hand tools and accessories safe and secure. His wall-hung cabinet holds more than 300 hand tools while taking up only about 12 square feet of wall space. Also reduced overall height down to 850mm (34") to enable reach of most tools, plus position tall tools (long planes) at top so as they can be handled from lower. A fun project which I was mainly motivated to do to learn finger joints, prevent tools rusting from salt air and create more space in my shop.

Since the design is tablesaw intensive, my suspicion is that the layout and height of the cabinet are ideal for a power tool using hand tool collector.
Sorry to troll, but it seems counter productive to go through the effort of putting a wall chest to put all your most used tools within arms reach, only to mount it on a wall where 50% of the tools are placed above one's head and 25% completely out of reach. Building it with hand tools can be a bridge to an era when woodworkers had an abundance of skill but no power tools. I also used two JCB’s for each of the door posts as I didn’t trust the eventual weight of my tools to wood screws.
Once you practice the techniques, you'll be more confident with hand tools and eventually may find them indispensable for day-to-day shop tasks. From dovetails to pins and finish options, these plans show you how to build an admirable chest.
