Gerstner & Sons is a famous Ohio firm that has been producing special hardwood chests for a hundred years. Recently, they perfected the manufacture of some of their designs in China, providing their customers with what we at Garrett Wade know to be exceptional values. The Asian production is all sold under the "Gerstner International" brand.

Our standard large Gerstner chest is our most popular model, so we're happy to be able to offer you the Special Drawer/Base, designed especially for this chest. The base weighs 22 lbs. and has 4 drawers. Our special price will save you money on the Chest with the Special Base as a matched set.

Gerstner Not What It Used To Be
Reviewed By:   (Cambridge, MA) 
I bought the large chest and base combo six years ago and have used it in my shop for layout&,measuring tools, bits, and small hand tools. It does not see "hard use". It seemed to hold up well for the first couple of years, but slowly it has been degrading. The joints in the case are separating, a split has formed in the board of one of the side, the hinge of the top have bent out of shape, the tumble of the base chest fell out, the front/tray has split out and the spring loaded hardware that holds it in place no longer springs (the tray pulls all the way out). Unfortunately Gerstner doesn't make the quality products it used to. My father gave me an "American made" special edition chest set several years ago. It had similar problems, poor design and cutting corners in manufacturing. Too Bad.

Pretty and Practical
Reviewed By:   (Wilsonville, Oregon) 
If you actually work and get your hands dirty this tool chest combo is much more practical than $2500 for the USA version. You really cant go wrong this is a very functional and pretty tool chest.

The chest and base are lots bigger/heavier than I envisioned. When I saw "China" I thought, "oh-oh!" but I examined these and they look very professionally done and solid. Now I have my leather tools and hardware in one place, not in 4-5 different areas. These are great, and worth more than I paid! Glad I happened to find your website, and I've told friends where they can get these. Everyone was very impressed!

Good quality in fit and finish. I would like to see them use a higher quality lock and key.
