My poor workshop area is so disorganised and disgracefully messy I decided that I should do something about it. I have two wooden boxes with chisels in them, or should be in them, and several other chisels still in their plastic containers, on my workbench. Thouble is most of the chisels are not where they should be. This creates more mess, and sore fingers and damaged cutting edges.
So an Executive decision was made after seeing someone elses good work, and I whipped up a chisel holder. I have to admit to being a little slack because I used boards from my stack and did not machine them first. Couldn’t see the necessity as a FANCY cabinet would not contribute anything more that this daggy one does, except for clearing my bench of two flat boxes and some plastic containers, and all my chisels are neat and tidy completely out of the way, but still within easy reach.
The outer edges are pine, the back is MDF and the inner rails are Douglas Fir. I used some PVC pipe, cut in two and screwed to the rails to support the chisels and the handles sit in recess holes.
C & C welcome.
