Chisel racks made from scrap pieces from a packing crate. Wood was hand planed to about 3/8” thick. Holes on top are 1/2” diameter. Overall size is 12” across, 7” high, 1 5/8” wide plus French cleats and bottom pieces of 3/8” wide. Front bottom piece is 2 1/4” high – just enough to cover tips of most of the chisels.
This gave me a chance to use Grandpa’s old hand planes and practice some hand-cutting of the joints. The racks can stand alone on top of the workbench or hang on the French cleats on the wall. The intention is that they will eventually fit inside the doors of a wall hanging tool cabinet (yet to be built).
No power tools were used. Please note – some sawdust is still on workbench.
