Good first project and nice job on dovetails. Noticed the radio; isn’t it great to be able to listen to music while you work on your project! Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Nice job! That’s a great little chisel box. I have that same set of chisels. Makes me want to build something similar. :)

Welcome back to it. That’s a nicely rendered case, especially after a many year long hiatus! :)

Congratulations for using hand tools for the chisel box. Your skill can be seen only when you use hand tools. You have made a very nice box.
