My son gave me a set of chisels for Christmas and I didn’t have a good place to keep them so I built this little cabinet. The panels are dogwood. The handel and cock bead are lacewood everthing else is walnut. I have a small area at the bottom for my shapening stones and an extra shelf so I can add to my collection. I just started building and this is what I ended up with. I learned a lot along the way.
Thanks for looking.

Very nice. It’s funny that chisels are sharp things… but they rarely come in boxes. I need to build one too.

Clay, that is great. Your walnut is very showy, and works well with the dogwood panels. I’ll bet you fill that puppy right up and have to build another!
