I am working on a project for myself and had my sweetheart chisels out laying on the bench in the leather roll that came with it and thought I better make these sweeties a rack so they will be handy and get used a little more .
It’s a simple rack made from jatoba ,magnets from a computer hard drive and some leather strips for covering the magnets .
I started with a strip of jatoba and drilled eight cup shaped holes for the butt ends to sit in using a modified spade bit and then made the upper part from another strip of jatoba .(see picture 4 and 5)
The strip has a dado cut into it to fit the magnets and leather strip which are glued in place with CA glue and then added spacer blockswhich are bevel cut on each end for each chisel location to keep the chisels from touching each other and are easy to insert .
I assembled the rack laying flat on the bench and mounted it with four screws when done . (see picture 3 )
A quick and easy project and now I have these chisels handy and well held in place with the magnets but easy to remove and put back into the proper location .
