Check out this awesome 1/12th scale replica of an 18th century tool chest. It was created by gifted miniaturist William Robertson, who has been creating incredible miniatures in Kansas City for over thirty years now.
The level of detail is astonishing. Look closely and you’ll see that this beautiful little chest and its contents are all fully functional:
"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.”
