no previous part Part 1 of Nomi Chiselrack series no next part

Hi guys.

yesterday i decided to make a quick n easy chiselrack for my new japanese chisels, they dont really deserve to be hidden away in a box on the shelve.

i made it from some Wengé scrap that was just sitting there under my workbench anyways, this is the first picture after i assembled it,so its not done yet, and the chisels haven’t been fitted :)

ps: iam making this after i sign out at work, so iam using my free time :)

Fine rack Jacob.
Those chisels looks just wonderful, and must be a months pay for a apprentice so I sure understand you take care of them.
Best thoughts,
Mads

That’s a sweet chisel rack! I really like the wood choice, although I typically don’t like working with wenge. That wenge has some sweet grain—looks a lot like bocote. AND, what can I say about those chisels? I hardly own any Japanese tools, but I’m always amazed at how sweet Japanese tools are. Those are works of art!

Mafe, yeah i think the chisels is pretty expensive, my boss bought them for me because i have 11 vacation days that i haven’t held and no time to do so because i’am going back to school in a month for 5 weeks, so it’s a pretty awesome gift :) heh and thanks for the link :)

Hi Brandon, no me neither, the dust from Wengé really irritates my eyes and the splinters gets infected after 10 seconds hehe, i haven’t worked with bocote? but yes this wengé is of really good quality i think.
these is my first “real” japanese tools besides 2 kanna that i haven’t set up properly yet ( i had 4 but sold 2 )
