Piano Tuner's Tool Chest

Alice just sent me a link (translated from Portugese) to a post on the Henry Studley piano tuner's tool chest. I saw an article on this chest year's ago in a back issue of Smithsonian (which I can't bring to hand right now) and I've always found the image beautiful and inspiring.

A chest like this would be total overkill for me, but I'd love to find a large high quality photo print.

Fine Woodworking Magazine sells a high quality wall poster of this chest for $20.

They also have several computer wallpaper versions available for download at

Search for Studley from the main page.
