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.

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.
