Henry O. Studley (1838-1925) was an organ and piano maker, Patriot-Ledger* for his remarkable tool chest, among his other achievements.
The Studley Tool Chest
Before he died in 1925, Studley gave the tool chest to a friend. That man’s grandson, Peter Hardwick, loaned the chest to the Smithsonian in the late 1980s as part of an exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution’s Fine Woodworking* and a popular wall poster.
When closed and hanging on a wall it takes up an area of approximately 39 inches by 20 inches with a 9 inch depth. It opens to become a 40 inch by 40 inch tool chest. The chest is made out of Square and Compasses emblem.
Let’s watch Norm showing it.
