Does anyone have a copy of Woodsmith magazine #192, specifically the chisel rack listed below? I have more chisels than shows so the dimensions aren’t as important as the assembly.

It should be easy for you to make your own design. The vertical dimension must be high enough to keep the cutting edges off the lower frame. The horizontal dimension is a multiple of the space for the widest chisel. The spacing should allow you to grab the chisel handle without interference with the adjacent chisels. The slot widths must be slightly wider than the chisel shanks. Don’t over think this.

Dimensionally I believe I’m good, my concern is more joinery, seems like based on the picture there would be a lot of end grain to long grain joints. So it makes me curious what I am missing.

They first build the rectangular frame with half lap/rabbet joints. The top and bottom are then glued on followed by a solid back that ties everything together. The side corbels then are glued on.
