Beautiful tool boxes I saw yesterday at the Goodguys.

These boxes were really nice, they run from about $800 to $4000.

Might be because I work with wood everyday or something else, but I really hate wood tool boxes.. I love tool boxes too. Just not made out of wood. It just seems wrong to me.

If I was going to make a wood tool box I could blow those out of the water! But I would never do that because its wrong.

To me, having those tool boxes is like chroming every thing on a motor that does nothing to add to performance. All glitter and no gold.

like most rodders i think i would take a crack and making the boxes myself.

even if i won 50million in the canadan lottery (no tax! ) i would buy the tools to make them rather than buy them.

looks like fine craftsmanship tho and a great item for ppl inclined to buy stuff in a finished product.

Looks to me that the building houses has slowed down and they are making ends meet. Beautiful boxes bit I am with Trees on this one, too pretty. Maybe if I had a real pretty set of tools I never used cuz they were to pretty...but then I would have won the lotto.

Any pics of the insides? I've been thinking of making something like that for my lathe stand (it has a steel frame, need some drawers inside it)... I like the rockers as handles...

Wood tool boxes for the tools in the wood shop, steel boxes for the garage/shop.

Those are very nicely done but would have to use them for my wood working tools, not mechanics tools (or else, if my wife saw them would become bedroom furniture )

I have and use an antique wood tool box. I bought it at an auction many years ago for $8.00 full of unknown tools which turned out to be toolmaker's once I figured out the combination. Most of those tools I was able to sell at a profit over my buying price

I currently use it to store a lot of those odds and ends we all end up with along with the top drawer full of a couple hundred drill bits that have either been resharpened or need to be

It needs another good clean up - but is very nicely built:
