    Tool chest handles

    I'd always wondered why most tool chests don't have handles on the upper lid. They don't even offer it as an add-on. So, I attached BMW door handles. Since they bolt onto the actual handle mechanism, they were easy to adapt for this. The stainless steel bolts were salvaged from something, but I can't remember what.

    These now look like they came from the factory this way. Looks good and useful. Thanks, Paul

    Thanks! I usually try to make things look original, but I didn't have anything that would match the drawer handles, but did have a bunch of these handles, so I settled for tidy.
