Don't forget that the Midwest Tool Collectors Association has their Area C Mid-Summer tool meet this Saturday. It starts at 8:00am and is being held at Tillers International in Scotts, MI , which is near Kalamazoo. I'll be there, selling tools and showing off my new carriage makers tool box. The cost to get in is $15.
If you are anywhere near Michigan this weekend, I highly recommend you stop out to the show.

Gary from Toolemera asked me to publish some dimensions of the box. The carcass is constructed with 3/4" oak, edge glued from narrower pieces. The box is 32 1/2" tall and 43 1/4" wide when opened. I've taken some pictures of the drawers and tills so that anyone who wants to copy it can do so.
Drawer detail, front is 1/2" thick, sides and bottom are 3/16"

The left till is 17 1/2" wide. The swinging gate with hooks is make of 1/2" thick material, 12 1/2" by 12 1/2" square.
I'm contemplating doing a quick and dirty Sketchup model of the box. Would any of you like the file, if I do one?
