traveling tool chestLast week, we shot the cover photo for the August issue. It’s a classic English tool chest sized for travel (though it holds almost a full complement of furniture making tools, sans moulding planes). The build was a collaboration between Christopher Schwarz, who designed and built the chest, and Jameel Abraham, who made the 3D marquetry panel for the lid’s interior (and Peter Ross, who made the hand-forged hardware.)

Last week, right after Al Parrish shot the picture in Chris’s shop, the chest took off to Chicago (in the back of Raney Nelson’s car) and made a brief stop at Jeff Miller’s shop for a Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event, then traveled home to Cedar Rapids, where Jameel will use it in his shop.

So, because a fair number of folks got to see it already in Chicago, and because I’ve been teasing it long enough, here it is:
