Default Amazing miniature tool chest

Just ran across this miniature tool chest.

http://www.toolchest-site.com/5/will...re-tool-chest/

Over 1000 hours in crafting the chest and tools.

Wow.

Tis a sad day when you see miniature work that has better detail and precision than the work you do today.

If he made the tools first, he may have used them to make the toolchest!

Wonder if he has a 2 inch bow clamp?

This guy must have incredible patience and discipline, qualities which I totally lack.

Guy missed his calling. Should have been a brain surgeon.

If I am not mistaken, some of his work was featured on the back cover of Fine Woodworking several years ago. I was just as impressed then as I am now.
