The Piano Maker's Tool Chest

The H.O. Studley tool chest held 300 tools in a space just 9 in. deep, 39 in. high, and 18 in. wide. They were so densely packed it took three strong men to lift it.


"Packing more tools per square foot than seems physically possible, piano maker Henry Studley's unrivaled tool chest also manages to be beautiful in the process. The chest stands as perhaps the most exquisite example of 19th-century tool-chest craftsmanship."
