Last Christmas I asked for each of these Japanese chisels as gifts from various family members. Now that I have a full set I decided that they needed a better home than a paper bag. So I used up some “scraps” to build this sliding-lid box.
Mahogany with a maple top and lined with black leather; and finished with boiled linseed oils and wax. Under each blade is a small rare-earth magnet embedded from underneath to keep them firmly in place. The magnets also would allow the box to be hung on the wall like a small cabinet.
