  • New Home for My Carving Chisels

    After having my chisels scattered about my workbench and hanging out in multiple rolls, I decided to make them a proper home and this chest is the result. The chest is made entirely from tiger oak that I picked up in Ohio last fall. The drawer fronts are from a single board, though it is obvious that I got the two bottom drawers out of order. Luckily, the drawers are mounted on over-extension glides so they can swap spaces easily.

    Thanks for looking,

    Tim

    PS I did leave a few extra spaces for some new chisels as the need arrives.

        Looks like you are going to lose some carving time Tim, just setting around and admiring your beautiful tool chest. Love it.
        If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

          Beautiful work, Tim, and a great organized home. Sadly I'm still in the disorganized phase.

                It's a beautiful tool chest, Tim. One must assume that you do all your carving in one place near the chest. A lot of carvers include a "travel tote" for club meetings, etc. I have a similar number of gouges, but keep my current "working tools" in a smaller box. Whatever you do, it should include some carving:

                    Wonderful storage, not like my denim rolls! How do you remember which gouge you put where?
                    I got as far as 2 categories: BIG and LITTLE and that's about it.
