"No stone is left unturned in the attempt to define the toolbox. This is a book to inspire and aspire to." - The Woodworker
"Ideas and inspiration galore." - Woodenboat
The Toolbox Book is a guided tour of some of the world's best tool-storage solutions, from early ship storage boxes to the tool kits astronauts use in space. Anyone who works with tools knows that a toolbox is as essential as the tools it holds. Not only does it protect tools, but it also organizes them for efficient work flow and quick inventory. In this book, professional woodworker Jim Tolpin offers expert advice on how to plan and build tool storage boxes, cabinets, and totes.
Tolpin takes the reader through the history of toolboxes, including their origin in journeymen's tool chests, built to demonstrate the owner's craftsmanship. He shows how today's site boxes have their roots in those long-ago tool chests. For today's craftsman, the author explains how to plan tool storage, select materials, construct, and finish nine types of storage systems, from traditional chests to a van outfitted as an amazing rolling toolbox.
This fully illustrated classic guide features 190 color photos of beautifully crafted and ingenious tool storage as well as measured drawings for more than 25 tool storage projects. Like its companion volumes The Workbench Book and The Workshop Book now also available in paperback, The Toolbox Book offers a wealth of new ideas for anyone who uses tools.
