Tiny Scale Replica of an 18th Century Tool Chest

1/12th scale tool chest by William Robertson

Miniaturist William Robertson made this astonishing 1/12th scale replica of an 18th century tool chest. The chest’s metal lock actually functions, as do all of the tools (note how the mini wood plane has shaved the pencil in the photo above). Robertson spent about 1,000 hours making the tool chest, and he works almost entirely by hand. For more of Robertson’s work, see this audio slideshow by Fine Woodworking.
