OK – nothing too fancy here – but wanted a safe haven to store the Sweethearts. I picked up the chisels a few weeks ago at a discounted price – so I just couldn’t resist. I have been thinking about buying a good set of chisels for awhile so hopefully this was a good choice. Thanks to Smitty_Cabinetshop
for the review.

The rack is some locally harvested Maple and some down and dirty Dremel carvings for the logo and chisel sizes. Finish is shellac with a bit of dye mixed in.

I would like to think that this set will get passed down to my son some day and so on…....

Thanks for looking.

Very nice rack your sweetheart has;) JK. I’m loving that full set of chisels. And that is a great home for them. How will you store the rack? On a shelf, in a cabinet. Maple couldn’t be a better choice. Good stuff Jeff. To the point and clean. Oh I like the knot hole. Lets you know it was a tree.

Hey Dave – It didn’t take you long to drag this post into the gutter….but I figured it would happen sooner than later…..:)

I am in the process of re-doing my main bench area so will add a french cleat behind to hang on the wall. I like using all the wood also, knots or otherwise…...

I should of also stated the passing down thing differently…...this is the first new tools I have aquired that that makes me think I want to pass them down….......

Appreciate the comments.
