This is a chisel box I made to house some of my Robert Sorby chisels. Red Oak & Bubinga with half blind dovetails done on the Porter Cable 4212. This was my first attempt at dovetails so I thought I might as well do something useful. The others are my set of Bridge City chisels and some other Bridge City stuff.

NICE! I would be very proud of that. I know you love those tools too, well displayed.

A righteous resting place for those fine tools.

Very nice! Did you make the box holding the Bridge City chisels too? I especially like the foam having cutouts for them.

Nice box. Like the stripes accross the lid. They realy set it off.

Fine collection of tools.

Keep it up.

Some great looking tools and a nice cozy place to keep them. Great job on the case construction.

Beautifully done! So, can I assume that your saw dust is also neat and in order? Very impressive storage.
