Craft this classy—and classic—basic tool chest for yourself! It will hold several screwdrivers, wrenches, pliers, and socket sets. If you want a larger version, just add more drawers or make the top deeper. We fashioned ours from red oak and used a medium-dark stain. Add side handles for mobility and a lock to keep your tools secure. Project plan includes detailed view of chest, material list (including hardware), step-by-step instructions, and full-color photographs. From Building the Perfect Tool Chest by Jim Stack.
