The Tool Chest of Benjamin Seaton, 2nd Edition - Gardening
The best preserved example of an 18th century cabinetmaker’s tool kit, Benjamin Seaton’s tool chest offers a unique window into the practices of a British cabinetmaker of that era.

Written by members of the Tools and Trades History Society and the staff of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, this detailed study of the chest provides a comprehensive account of its origins, construction and contents. Chapters devoted to Seaton’s collection of planes, saws, chisels and layout tools place each of the nearly 200 tools in its historical context.

This expanded second edition includes measured drawings of the chest and annotated illustrations of many of the tools, as well as a detailed account of the construction of a replica for Colonial Williamsburg. A fascinating reference for tool makers, collectors or anyone interested in the history of woodworking.

Softcover, 8-1/4" X 10-1/2", 179 pages, 2012.
