This is just a small chisel rack/ holder/organizer thing.
In my quest towards organizing my chaos, I am building a small hand tool box with 5 drawers. This thing fits nicely inside one of the drawers, but can be removed if required.
I just measured out a good spacing and cut the round holes with a forstner bit (actually 2 sizes) out of some scrap mahogany and then ripped it in half to form the supports. I planed a small angle on the back of this piece to follow the handles better and prevent the wear.
At the pointy end I just cut small mortices to the size of each blade but at an angle.
To prevent the chisels from sliding about during transport I made a small removable stop behind the handles.
Costs = zero. All made of scraps.
Just oiled it a bit, seems ok so far.
