Master craftsman Henry O. Studley (1838-1925) was an organ and piano maker, carpenter, and mason. He is best known for building this incredible tool chest during his tenure at the Poole Piano Company in Massachusetts, working on it over the course of 30 years. Using ebony, mother-of-pearl, ivory, rosewood, and mahogany – all materials used in the manufacture of pianos – he refined the chest to the point that, even now in the 21st century, it is still in a class by itself.

The Studley Tool Chest holds 300 tools, yet measures only 9 in. deep, 39 in. high, and 18 in. wide, when closed (22.86 x 99.06 x 45.72 cm). Every tool has a custom-made holder to keep it in place, many with beautiful inlay, and tiny clasps that rotate for easy access. As the chest folds closed, tools from the left side nestle precisely between tools on the right side.

it really is unbelieveable what humans are capable of.... too bad our education system literally puts a plug on our potential since a young age.

a guy built this under his house. by himself.

Holy fuck is that thing AWESOME!

Can you buy that?
If I got something like that for my dad, I'd be the best son ever.
My brother Mac would shit himself if I got him one too.
that's probably worth more than your life.
So how much?
I'll go as high as $129.95!

I have Similar one, not quite as fancy
Link where I can buy this, even if it's fantastical please.
absolutely beautiful

Mr Studley had an eye for geometry.

I wonder if you drew a plan with the measurements etc, if a chinese factory could replicate that thing, with modern hand tools, and mass produce it?
^^ I'm surpised that a company like Snap-On, hasn't already done that.

This is a limited edition tool box they made.
