Tool chest for chisels. Is it also a till?

I turned the handles for these chisels to match my carving tools from from beetle kill ash from my property. This is a second set of chisels to be kept sharp at 25° or a little less. The “beater” set is Stanley 60s sharpened at 30°. This was a logical thing to do to have a place to keep them. All wood is from local Illinois trees.

Beautiful case, Dan and great job on the handles, too.

Your picture doesn’t do the work justice. Nice weave, wish I could see more of the weave, and inside the box.

Very nice work there Dan. I like the handles, they must feel great in hand.
