Wooden Tool Chests

As well as placing old style wooden trunks and chests inside the house, the use of an old wooden chest out in the workshop will also provide you with a functional storage unit that will be in keeping with the style of its surroundings. Antique wood tool chests are reliable workhorses that are capable of withstanding all kinds of daily knocks and bumps. They are incredibly useful, not only for their storage capabilities but also for the flat surface they provide that can be used in numerous different ways.

A wooden carpenters tool chest can be used as a seat, a sawhorse or simply a spot to temporarily place other tools. In most cases it is not a requirement that the old tool chest be particularly decorative, although some of them, especially those that were made by professional carpenters, are more than likely going to be impressive in their appearance.

It is the durability and storage space that you should be basing your purchase decision on. A tool chest sitting in a busy workshop is going to get a lot of use and so it will have to be durable and hardwearing. The nature of many of these old wooden tool chests is that they have been proven for their reliability over years of constant work.

It is possible to pick up a very serviceable wooden tool chest for around $20.00 and, in fact I have seen a lot of them sell for prices somewhat cheaper than that. Some of these tool chests have been created with a range of small drawers and pull out shelves making them very handy for storing small items such as nails, nuts, screws and bolts.

Machinist Wooden Tool Boxes

Naturally there are many different types of wooden tool chests and boxes that will provide you with an adequate storage system for your tools. These days they are nowhere near as commonly made or sold thanks to the preference for cheaper products such as plastic and metal. Those with a fondness for older styles will remember the sturdy machinist tool boxes that were used everywhere. These days one of these types of boxes can still be bought, although they are more difficult to find and more expensive than the mass produced plastic versions.

These traditional tool chests are generally very well made and provide an almost decorative appeal thanks to the craftsmanship that went into their manufacture. Not only do antique machinist tool boxes look attractive on the outside, they also provide your tools with a luxurious storage space on the inside. The better quality tool chests are lined with soft felt to protect the tools from being knocked and bumped and they are separated out into many different compartments and small drawers as another way of both protecting the tools and keeping them well ordered.

In short, an antique wooden tool chest is going to cost you a little more than buying one that was more recently made but, in the long run, it is going to be well worth it.

If you are looking for a wooden tool chest that will last for generations and operates smoothly and efficiently, you should seriously consider a Gerstner tool chest.
