I wanted a portable case for my carving chisels, but I couldn’t find a design a liked… so I made my own. Works just like I had planned.

Thanks for viewing.

Very nice stuff. Don’t let it collect dust in the shop; people need to see this!

Nice design, I really like the way it folds out.

Very nice, very cool design! I am going to have to favorite this for future reference. Just one question, how are you going to accomodate that 17th chisel?

I like the design and the way the lid folds back to provide support which I’m sure makes it easy to grab a chisel and put it back. I need to do something like this, since I tend to accumulate the various chisels on the bench. Which is okay until one fall onto the hard floor (like it did yesterday) and blunts the edge!

Thank you for the comments. One question; so I dyed strips of African Mahogany to make the “inlays,” and I had a problem when I started shellacking. The dye began to bleed into the surrounding shellac. I had to sand it off, and then very carefully shellac the strips to seal them before continuing with the rest.

Is the only proper solution to seal the dyed components before assembly, or is there another trick I should have used (like taping).

Thanks for the advise, and the reviews.

Later dudes. Burn dust. Eat my rubber.

Nice work.
Sealing before assembly is the surest way of not bleeding out.
