    Studley tool chest

    I had never heard of the Studley tool chest before, but bumped into a thread about it by rdn2blazer on OffRoadFabNet.com. Here it is when it was featured on New Yankee Workshop:



    The Wikipedia page on Henry O. Studley is interesting too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_O._Studley . He was a piano maker, Civil War soldier, Mason, and incredibly gifted craftsman. PhoenixMasonry.org has reprinted the Fine Woodworking article about the tool chest: Studley 1993 Tool Chest Article by Fine Woodworking Magazine .

    The tool chest was bequeathed to Studley's attorney, handed down to his grandson, traded for a '34 Ford, loaned out to the Smithsonian, restored, and ultimately bought for an unnamed price by a private collector. It contains nearly 300 tools, many of them made by Studley himself.

    And I thought studley referred to my triple deck Craftsman and hangon side cabinet. I don't push it anymore, apparently insufficiently studley.
