Customer Tool Chest Mark 2
Stuart, a good customer, sent me these pictures of his recently completed tool chest made form the F&C article and a very nice job he's done too.
The shot below of the interior was very accurate and shows how well everything fits whilst remaining easily accessible.
He's sub divided the base with a well fitted interior.
Stuart managed to achieve both the piston fit tray as well as the soft close lid.
Here's a jack plane made from rock hard Ziricote a rare, expensive and beautiful timber. The blade and mechanism were from Veritas, made for the purpose.
The rear has been kept nice and low which gives a better 'feel' and the crook provides blade support.
And to finish a dinky little plane is lignum vitae, which will probably prove more useful than it may look.
