In "Virtuoso: The Tool Cabinet and Workbench of Henry O. Studley", H.O. Studley managed to fit 250 handtools into a dovetailed cabinet no larger than 254mm x 990mm x 495mm, this cabinet created a vast amount of interest from just one photo. A piano maker, Studley was a master craftsman whose work was featured in the Smithsonian before disappearing into a private collection. 

This book covers "How did he build it, and how does it work? And even, why would anyone construct such a monument to his tools"? In this book you will find measurements, details and photographs of all the tools in the cabinet. Every swinging frame, hinged panel and nook of this three-dimensional, multi-layered sculpture has been analysed so you can understand how it folds in on itself like a giant piece of mahogany origami.
