The Studley tool chest was loaned to the Smithsonian, then displayed in the National Museum of American History as the centerpiece of woodworking.
Mr. Studley, a piano maker by trade, created this mahongany tool chest using detailed inlays of ebony, ivory and mother of pearl.

This is simply amazing …
I stopped at a garage sale a few days ago and found a wood chisel that had been severely abused and probably used on everything other than wood. I paid a dollar for the chisel, made in Sweden, took it home and turned a frog into a prince using the Worksharp sharpening system.
The Worksharp is a beautiful sharpening tool that can recondition your chisels or hand plane blades back to their original sharpness and then some. The Worksharp is also great for small touchups and maintaining your tools so you will never have to worry about pulling a dull tool out of you drawer or rack again.
I would highly recommend this affordable sharpening station to anyone!
It pays for itself in no time!
