3.0 out of 5 stars Left me a little underwhelmed
There are some highlights in this book, but I think that it falls short of the standard set by similar contemporary books on workbenches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration for building beautiful boxes, 10 May 2000
This review is from: The Toolbox Book: A Craftsman's Guide to Tool Chests, Cabinets and Storage Systems (Craftsman's Guide to) (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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas and styles, 28 July 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Toolbox Book: A Craftsman's Guide to Tool Chests, Cabinets and Storage Systems (Craftsman's Guide to) (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book, 4 July 1998
By A Customer
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.

Never again will the off-the-shel tool book or storage method be acceptable, get the book, dive in, read up then go make your own.

Bought this as a present for my son who loved it. Has excellent illustrations and is ideal for anyone who loves real craftsmanship. Doesn't have detailed info for making individual projects but gives lots of inspiration.
