I made this stand for my new bench chisels.

The used wood is mahogany.

The middle section of the stand is sawn and laminated from one solid piece of mahogany.
The finish is 2 coats of Danish Oil.

Thanks for viewing.

Comments are always welcome.

Hi Bas
Very nice. How do you stop the chisels falling through? Is it a friction fit?

Hi Jim,

Yes, it is a friction fit.
I measured the thickness and the with of all the chisels with a calliper.
Actually the spacers between the chisels are lightly tapered, because the thickness of the chisels decreases.

An elegant solution. Is it tippy?
