Tool Storage: Studley Tool Chest

Over the course of 30 years, H.O. Studley, carpenter and Mason, built his epic tool chest while employed at a piano manufacturer. With special fixtures to hold each of the 300 hundred tools, the chest is surprisingly compact as the tools are held three deep, yet you are still able to remove most tools without having to displace other tools to unearth them. As could be expected, the chest is loaded with symbols and numbers with Masonic significance.
