    Thanks, folks! I'll point out that this is my 5th or 6th chest, so I should have the setup pretty well ironed out. The separators are poplar dowels chosen at a width that keeps the sharp parts of the chisels out of contact with each other while minimizing the space required. The previous one was walnut, but I was afraid to transport it, as it might get all banged up. Here's a pic of that one. I keep it in my bedroom to put trinkets in, instead.

    Carving Tool Chest

    As my carving has evolved, I've made a few chests to accommodate the tools. This latest chest is made rough and ready in order to take the rigors of travel to/from the local club/class. It's Baltic birch, 1/2" and 1/8". Dimensions are 17-1/4" wide, 15-1/2" tall, 11-1/2" deep. The width and depth were dictated by the size of the (Pfeil) palm tools. I don't carry the larger carving tools anywhere, so they are in a much larger chest that sits under my carving bench. It is currently 30 pounds, as configured, with tools. I have one empty drawer and expansion space in two others for eventual placement of other palm tools to be purchased as I need them.
