In the 1920s and 1930s, the 31 series was one of our most popular lines. It was specially designed without the classic opening top, which made it much more portable. It was so well-liked, almost every wood chest manufacturer in the era copied its drawer layout and focus on portability. It was such a highly regarded series that we reproduced the 31A for our 100th Anniversary Celebration. 

Our craftsmen wanted to take the spirit of portability and efficiency that first made this series so beloved, and combine it with more modern improvements we’ve developed. We’re excited to announce the launch of our Vintage Chest—a whole new class of quality, portable tool chest. It is designed with the 8-drawer layout of the iconic Style 31 chest. We replaced the fold-down front lid design with a lock bar. While it has all the functionality of a fold-down lid, it allows for taller drawers with ample room for modern tools. Our craftsmen also improved the carrying handle, which is sturdy yet comfortable, even when the case is fully loaded.

Inspired by the vintage styling of the original 31 Series of cases (shown below), the style 2008 (20" wide with 08 drawers) is a vintage case at heart, updated for today's user.
