I received a letter from Steve in Vancouver this week and wanted to share it with you. Steve recently finished making a version of my Cabinetmaker’s Toolchest following plans in my book, Made by Hand.
We went back and forth a bit via email, with some design and construction considerations and it looks like they turned out great.
Thanks again for sharing this with us Steve-
the toolchest looks amazing!
Hi Tom,So the toolchest is finally complete and I owe you a debt of gratitude. Not only for coming up with the design, but for your coaching and support over the last 6 months. Your schedule these days must be incredibly busy with the launch of the Unplugged Woodshop School, which makes your commitment to replying to my emails, promptly and throughly, even more appreciated.A few notes about my toolchest… I changed the proportions slightly and added a half mortise lock to the main compartment. I also added interior dividers along with magnetic holders for the saws.Cheers,Steve Kang
