Needed something nice to store my Blue Spruce Long Paring Chisels. Made from black walnut and lined with felt. The felt is actually Donjer flocking material.

That looks great, but just a little more clarity is really needed so that we can all appreciate it more. Possible to edit your post and add a few more images, perhaps some dimensions, etc. Good work.

Dave, is that store bought? I saw the box at the end of you bench, thought I’d ask where you bought it from. (I need one too) just wondering. If you made it, tell us the story process of the build with pictures too.

Thanks for all the comments. I will take some more pics and provide dimensions and other information soon. Bradford, the box at the end of my bench was what the chisels were shipped to me in. If your not familiar with Blue Spruce Toolworks you have to check them out. They are incredible superior quality chisels with great balance and hold an edge. The problem is they are almost to pretty to use which is why I needed to make a storage box, but trust me you will want to use them on your projects.

One other note is that I crafted the bench they are sitting on last year. It was built following by-in-large the plans “Ultimate Workbench” from Fine Woodworking. I am a brand new member Lumber Jocks so with a little time I will post pictures and project notes/comments on the workbench as well as some of my other recent projects.

Hi Dave, I love the color combination between the blue felt and the wood. Can you tell me please haw did you get to put the felt in the tight spaces?

Actually the felt is not felt sheet but done with Donjer Flocking. You apply an adhesive of the same color of flock and then you mist the flock on.
