Story

The Gerstner Utility Chest, a venerable gem of the Gerstner back catalog, has been specially brought back and re-built to our specifications. Available only to Best Made Company, The Utility Chest, like our coveted 41D, is made for us in Ohio by H. Gerstner & Sons. Our collaboration with the 108-year-old case maker starts with kiln-dried American cherry and finishes with solid brass hardware. The case is emblazoned with custom felt lining and the stamp of excellent storage, the Best Made data plate. More suitable for the bookshelf or desktop than the stately 41D, the Utility Chest is a home for the tools of your craft. Artists, tinkerers, and collectors alike will find the Utility Chest truly dignifies the objects that embody their skills.

History

H. Gerstner & Sons was founded in Dayton, OH by Harry Gerstner in 1906. Gerstner is now a 4th generation family owned business known throughout the country for heirloom quality, handcrafted tool chests. It’s acknowledged that those who keep their tools in a Gerstner Tool Chest are a cut above the rest. Harry Gerstner’s basic principle still applies to every tool chest built – “A place for everything and everything in its place.”
