The first real tool chest that I built was based (loosely) on Benjamin Seaton’s famous tool chest that now resides at the Guildhall Museum in Rochester, England. What’s particularly striking for me is how many tools Seaton managed to pack into the chest. And, by several amazing twists of fate, his chest has survived the centuries nearly intact. These photos only double my resolve to get my butt across the Atlantic to see the chest and tools in person. Chris is a contributing editor to Popular Woodworking Magazine and the publisher at Lost Art Press.
It’s also interesting the way the handles look like full-blown 19th century style–almost centered, and taller than earlier examples.


Chris, there are many other things to also see across the Pond, including people to visit, if you haven’t met them already. Christopher Schwarz has helped many of us solve some pretty frustrating problems over the years. Most woodworkers know it because of the famous book “The Tool Chest of Benjamin Seaton” – now in its second edition, and one of the core books for hand-tool enthusiasts. So I was a bit envious when a friend of mine, Bengt Nilsson, sent me photos of the chest from his visit to the museum this month.
Though I feel like I know every tool in the chest, it’s a bit shocking to see new and different photos of them.
One thing I have long wondered is whether the bench planes have strike buttons–the book doesn’t say.


That is by choice, of course, but it still boggles my mind to see how tightly fit everything is. After finishing its construction and filling it with a complete set of tools at the end of the 18th century, he turned his attention to being an auctioneer and an undertaker.
You might not ever be as close to seeing what tools looked like when they were new in the 18th century.
It’s hard to tell from the photo because of the way they’ve draped those irons over the planes, but I *think* the answer is no.
