If you like a place for everything, and everything in its place, or if you’re just curious about how far someone is prepared to go in the realm of anal retentiveness, you should check out a remarkable piece of woodworking history – Studley’s tool box.

HO Studley was a piano maker who lived and worked in Massachusetts in the late 1800s.

He spent 30 years refining the beautiful tool cabinet he made out of mahogany and rosewood, with ivory and ebony inlays.
