    Tiny Scale Replica of an 18th Century Tool Chest
    Gear  /  Tools
    William Robertson made this 1/12th scale replica of an 18th century tool chest from Colonial Williamsburg. Robertson spent about 1,000 hours making the tool chest, and he works almost entirely by hand
    "Robertson’s tool chest contains all the same tools that were found in the original. All the tools work, even the plane’s tote (handle) is set a scale 1/8″ to one side as the original. The saw has 160 teeth to the inch. Robinson says that the hardest tool to make was the folding rule with 5 leaf hinge. It is about .030″ thick and hand engraved on boxwood. Things like the shears and dividers also have nice little joints."
