Showcase cover image for chisel boxes

Project Information

I got this set of Ashley Isles chisels off the sawmill creek classified section. The first box has chisels from 1/8" up to 1" by 1/8" increments. The big box has 1 1/4" 1 1/2" and 2" chisels in them.
The small box is made of pine and I alternated the chisels vertically to make the box smaller. I did the same with the big except I didn't alternate them.
The big box has a plywood lid that I glued walnut on the edges. I made the rabbets in them so I wouldn't see the plywood edges. I glued a strip of leather at the back end of the big box to help protect the end of the box and the chisel ends.

Great job on the boxes well worth the effort to help protect some great chisels. As you can probably guess I like Ashley Iles tools and own some of their carving and turning ones

thanx for the comments. These AI chisels have a different feel when compared to my LN chisels. The AI's are much lighter and thinner but the cut as well as the LN chisels.

Great job Ralph! I read your blog regularly and remember you making these. I need to make one like this for some new chisels I got recently (Pfeil). Thanks for writing by the way, I really enjoy reading what you're up to. I love RI also by the way, spend time in Westerly in the summer.
