I am still using a small English tool chest my Grandfather made for me for Christmas in 1968, when I was 8. Yikes my wife is getting old! I still use a chest, because I work in my garage, and I live in the Chicago suburbs. It the winter, I bring the chest inside. Too cold to work in the garage. I do most of my reading and project planning then. We are thing of moving when we retire. That is when I will have a dedicated shop inside the house or heated outbuilding. Then I may do something different.
