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.

kolwdwrkr, I did not make that box. It also came from Bridge City.

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.
