I wanted a home for my rehabbed antique chisels & wanted to put my hand tools through some paces. I built the case out of cheap poplar stock from Lowe’s. The surfaces were hand planed with the trusty 40, 7, 5, 4, and 80. The carcass is assembled with hand-cut dovetails. The rebates were executed with a 78. Dovetail dividers by hand. It houses my collection of Winchester & Butcher socket chisels utilizing a variety of wood handles turned on the lathe with tenoned leather butts. My favorite paring chisel is the one at the extreme right with a fat olivewood handle.
I plan to execute a proper ultilitarian chest of drawers out of a more pleasing wood. Thanks for looking! Al
