The Style 2610 Journeyman Chest is their most recognizable and sought after design by Gerstner since its introduction in the 1930's.
The Style 2610 Journeyman Chest incorporates the timeless look and drawer layout of the Style 52 with added overall height and depth (front to back) for more useable storage. The drawers have also been upgraded with pre-machined slots added to the front, sides and back to accommodate dividers. The chest comes with a selection of dividers already cut to the size of the drawers. The center drawer, which was traditionally used to hold a Machinist's Handbook, can be upgraded to a locking drawer for additional security and peace of mind. The drawers also feature backplates behind the knobs for a truly classic look.
The taller and deeper drawer sizes make the Style 2610 Journeyman Chest a great chest to hold and display just about anything. The top compartment and all ten drawers are felt lined to provide extra protection for your possessions. The front panel is fitted with a sliding hinge so that it may be stowed beneath the bottom drawer. In the closed position, the front panel covers the drawers and can be locked to provide total security.
