Some friends of Eagle America woodorking ran across this amazing tool chest and we thought we would pass it along to our readers.
The Studley tool chest was loaned to the Smithsonian, then displayed in the National Museum of American History as the centerpiece of woodworking.
Look closely. You can see just about every woodworking hand tool ever heard of, beautifully mounted in this highly detailed case.
Mr. Studley, a piano maker by trade, created this mahongany tool chest using detailed inlays of ebony, ivory and mother of pearl.
There are individual cuts and recess for each tool as well as hinged compartments behind the tools seen in the photo that contain even more tools.
Just some of the tools in this chest include: hand saws, hand planes, various measuring tools, drill bits, carving chisels, hammers and much more.

This is simply amazing …
