All the tools I have, save the SawStop®, I inherited from my father. Of these, the hand tools are dearest to me. And so I decided that they needed a decent home. I stole the design for the exterior case from ShopNotes® and adapted it to hold chisels, hammers etc. The entire piece is made of knotty pine and the back is wainscoting – all from a big box home-reno store. There is a magnetic strip holding the chisels to the cabinet: great idea, but next time I will use rare earth magnets (much stronger).
