I dabble in the restoration of old wood maschinist’s chests. Gareth over at the Make blog wrote a very nice article about of a couple of my boxes and Toolmonger has featured a few of them. One you might particularly appreciate for it’s moderate Steampunkyness, the Gear Box, which Gareth described as Capt. Nemo’s shore locker can be found here:

Wow! somehow I managed to miss this absolutely gorgeous toolbox! I’ve been wanting a toolbox like this for a long time and I have a little pile of “special” wood just waiting for some free time for me to build myself one. Be sure I’ll be stealing some ideas from TXInkman!
