I got tired of having my nice chisels all banging around in a box. I decided it was time to make a nice wall mount rack for them. This project was made with some scrap maple I had left over from another project. It was finished with 2 coats of shellac. I wasn’t too fussy about the final finish because it’s a shop project, so no french polish shellac to a high gloss. It has a 1/4” french cleat on the back that will mount it onto the wall.
Most the chisels fit in a 1” diameter hole which is exactly the size to hold the chisel ferrule. To accommodate the chisels that have a larger blade, I chiseled out a slot as shown in the drawing above. The width of the slot was adjusted to accommodate each individual chisel, the drawing shown is for the 2” chisel. You can see the slot on the last photo for the 3 larger chisels. The 4th chisel also needed a slot but it’s so small the handle covers it.
