    Could anyone give me an idea of how heavy these tool chests are when loaded up with tools? (Very roughly)

    Many thanks,

    Ben

    I’m in the process of building the tool chest project in walnut. I have the carcass and bottom glued up, not together yet. It’s already getting pretty darn heavy. I did go a little taller and a little longer, both a couple of inches. Here’s a picture before the glueups. I would imagine that you would not want to be moving it very often especially when it’s full of tools.

    I understand that’s not too scientific, but hope that it helps.

    Best regards,
    Paul

    Weight depends on material. Pine plus tools will not be bad, heavy but not bad. I say that based on moving my fully loaded joiners chest around which is much larger. You will want good handles and latch for the top. That said I dont think this design was really meant to be all that mobile since the drawers dont lock.
