This project actually does include a piece of plywood, so I hope it isn’t taken down!

For some time I have struggled with how to store my carving tools so that I could easily travel with them AND access them when I am home. The problem was that there are limited options for tool rolls that fit palm tools. Even if I could find one, it still wouldn’t solve the problem of storing sharpening tools, layout tools,etc.

So I turned my attention to tool boxes and tool bags. I couldn’t find one with compartments that fit my tools. The boxes with tool trays did not give me ready access to my tools.

My solution was to cut out part of the tool tray. Then I used foam pipe insulation to create storage spots for the palm tools. I got this design from a wood carving magazine. I put in a couple of small bolts to serve a holding pins for a piece of plywood that holds the foam to one side of the box. You can see the results in the pics I attached. I don’t know why, but the pics are showing up upside down.

By the way, the whole thing cost $9.

Very ingenious. I love storage solutions! I make things out of other material as well and try to get a wood piece in with it to make it “legal”

Nice work…........cheers, Jim
