Whalen tool chest wood top,wood carving small faces,12x12 ground level deck plans - For Begninners
Injuries, including cuts requiring stitches, have been reported with the recalled 72-inch tool chests. The right side has a cabinet with shelves and peg board to hang tools on the inside of the door.
The chest stands on swivel caster wheels and has handles on each end that can be used to move the unit.
I've done internet searches for the Whalen unit but no good hits for capacity and dimensions. Oh and Stainless fronts is not a problem in a real shop, not enough people around to leave prints all over it and a simple wipe down once in a while when putting the tools back in is all you need.

I live in MD and I haven't seen any tool cabinets in Costco's around Baltimore or in Christiana, DE. You couldn't make them for what they cost and the tops will make a great backer for the work surface.
I'm thinking about possibly moving all my socket sets there and consolidating all the sockets in the top two center drawers instead of the way i have them in the hammerhead toolbox in 4 different drawers. When I open them fully out, there's only about 1" between the face of the toolbox and the back of the drawer.
For professional use, this box does not have a whole lot of room, and maybe because I work on semis, I have some larger tools that filled up those big drawers rather quickly. I have since purchased a blue point cart with sliding top which houses all of my sockets, some wrenches, and other stuff I use everyday.
