Gerstner’s Tool Chests enjoy a reputation of unmatched excellence - one built over a century because of Gerstner’s unwavering commitment to superior materials and workmanship – both in their USA-made chests and those made in Asia by Gerstner International. It has long been recognized that to acquire a chest constructed with more care, a craftsman would need to build and finish it himself. Thanks to the good folks in Ohio, you now have a chance to try.
Our Chest Kit is a classic 7-drawer design featuring 4 half-width drawers over 3 full-width drawers with a lockable front panel which stows under the bottom drawer on a sliding pin hinge. Precision machined of quarter-sawn American White Oak (the “tiger stripe” rays on our sample chest are quite distinctive, as can be seen in the photo). The individual wood components come unfinished – once assembled, you complete the sanding, stain and finish it exactly as you want your own chest to look.
The Kit includes solid Oak parts for the chest and drawers, nickel-plated hardware, including knobs, corners, lock and keys (plus all associated screws), felt for the drawer bottoms and inside front lid, and complete easy-to-follow instructions on assembly and glue up. This Kit is made in Gerstner’s Ohio factory. The completed Chest made in that factory lists for $499.
Overall chest dimensions are H 11-1/2”; W 16”; D 8-3/4” (see the chart below for full drawer dimensions).
