 We are growing fast. We are now at  42 high x 37 wide x 14 deep with 25 drawers. Thanks Ken for the face lift, it looks  much better now. I also told the boys to stop with the tool search. LOL

  I liked that 2nd Cad. I'm going to use that top part with the book drawers on mine. I originally had 3 on mine, I now have 2 outboard and the 2 small drawers and a space in the center.In that same amount of space I have 8 more drawers where you have 6.0 Thanks. I'm hoping to get a rough sketch on here this week-end.

Here's a couple of tool box CAD drawings I started many years ago for anyone who wants a copy. There's no dimensions just the physical shape of the box.  It's all full scale so dimensions can be added as you see fit.

Oops! It won't let me post them.  If anyone wants a copy, PM me with your email address and I'll send a copy when i get a moment.

Meantime, I'll post a pdf file of them.

 They are no longer available hence why I want to get them on a disc. They were $30.00 new I bought mine in the early 80s The first printing was June of 83.  Ken, if you have a set, don't lose them. Many people are looking for them.

Somewhere in my stuff I have that same set of plans my dad purchased back in the late 1980's.  They are too large to scan or take pictures of.  It appears they are no longer available for sale.

 You gave it away. LOL I was going to have my son put them on a Disc. I have a set of paper prints for the Morrison Originals Chest Plan #128. It's a dead ringer for a Gerstner Chest. I would like to get them on a Disc as soon as possible., they were purchased in the 80<s and are getting quite delicate now. Does anyone know how to do this???

They say that once you have it black, you never go back!  I believe that.

And I like my coffee strong enough to awaken my dead ancestors!   !AOK

 Their  HQ in Indiana will sell to me but I would rather hand pick if I can. Thank-you for the help.

 Went into overtime last night on the design stage. Wrapped up this morning at 1:35 AM.

  FINAL stats are 24 drawers. Sized to 14 deep x 37 wide x 41 high, you ain't moving it when it's full  ROTFLMAO It has to be this big because of 3 generations of tools that sit in 4 different chests at present. I just know in the end it won't be big enough.

 I gotta get some sleep today. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
