Bill Gruby:
 It seems my sons have bought a lot of tools since I have been laid up. My first thing to do will be to make a new home for them. I have designed a new 20 drawer chest to put them in.It will be made from cherry wood,all1/2 and3/8 thick. Now I have to find a way to post pictures here LOL. Stand by folks, to be continued.

 Approximately 14 deep x 35 high x 34 wide just a WAG

  8 drawers 1 1/2 x 10 x12

  2 drawers 8 x 3 1/2 x 12

  6 drawers 2 x 13 3/4 x 12

  2 drawers 3 x 29 x 12

 2 drawers 3 1/2 x 29 x 12

 :sign0065:   Oh Boy what a tease!!   :85:    I was looking at a cabinet a few weeks ago...  fella thought it was a dentist tool box.  Stood about 5 feet high, maybe 20 inches wide (more or less) ,  and maybe about the same depth.. 20 inches.    I thought it might be a good box for all the small things we seem to acquire. Even drill bits could be sorted and stored in an orderly fashion..  but his price was way north of 500 bucks so I said no thanks..  But I'm always looking.  Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Bill Gruby:
 I may or may not need your help posting pics till I get the hang of it, I could email them to you and you could post them for me. I want to start in January. What do you think??

Bill Gruby:
 Still in the design stages. Now it will have 24 drawers. New size box will measure 36 x 36 x 14 That's a big machinists tool chest. The 3 additional drawers will measure 3 x 11 x 14 This is gonna take a lot of lumber. I will  hand pick all of it. If it isn't eye appealing it's not worth the effort.
  More designing to do LOL

I'm anxious to see some pix and follow your project.

It sounds like you're going to build a family heirloom.
