I purchased a set of Veritas PMV11 bench chisels and built a box to store them in based on Dereck Cohen’s chisel box. The box is made out of hard maple and walnut. The chisels are held tightly in place within the box. Finish is Watco Oil.

Very nicely designed and crafted. I like your method of holding the handles in place much better than my use of rare earth magnets. Thanks for sharing.

Clean, neat and sleek. Well crafted and the two tone colors project seamlessly. I really like it.
