Format: Paperback
Contained within the pages of this book is everything to inspire you to have a beautiful container for holding your tools. The history starts from the earliest simple chests to hi-tech tool boxes as used in space. The photographs are very well shot, with the copy being very readable. The toolboxes shown in this book will supply more than enough material for any competent woodworker make their own unique toolbox. One section that is particularly inspiring is about work of the school in Boston. Just because a tool box is very practical it does not mean it cannot be beautiful.

Format: Paperback
A great history of the toolbox with some good ideas. I hoped for some more detail on fitting out options but am still glad I own this book. I review it often for design ideas outside the realm of toolboxes.

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book, but is for the advanced to professional woodworker.It gives many, many design ideas but little on how to implement them. Implementation of ideas is left to the woodworker, adding to the versatility of this book.

Format: Hardcover
This is a good book for ideas about toolboxes. It has some beautiful toolboxes from past and present. It will make a great coffee table book for the serious woodworker. Not very helpful for building an actual toolbox.

I gathered a not of cool ideas from this book and keep it handy for reading when I have time. I enjoy learning no matter what the information is and I definitely benefited from reading this.

This is a well produced book with good illustrations and at least one photograph which will show you how inadequate your woodworking skills are. However, there are plenty toolboxes for mere mortals to make, so its a good buy.
However, there is nothing to stop you building your own box, bag, tote or cupboard to your own design and spending the cost of the book on a tool!
I will not be trading the book in. I will re-read it for inspiration whenever I feel the need.

By M. Herdman on 4 Feb. 2010
Format: Paperback
A book of inspiration, for the storage of woodworking tools, in traditional ways, and modern twists. How to keep your tools safe, ready for use, and off the bench!
This shows how it was done, and how it can be done.
Not much in the way of instructions, but when you have this type, and quantity, of tools, simple "How to" books are not needed, this book will encourage, pushing the boundries of your skills, perhaps further than you thought.
