    Wood Chisel Storage

    How do you store your chisels? I have an idea, but would like to see a couple others first. Thinking of a hanging arrangement.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Steve,

    I haven't built one of these yet, but I've seen variations on this theme as a hanging unit. This is from Wood Magazine.

    I have something similar to what Bill posted. Never thought about removing the legs and attaching it to a wall.

    Mine just hang on a bar magnet attached to my pegboard. My better chisels have plastic blade protectors on them.

    I use a tool roll because I often need to take the chisels with me. When used at home, I lay the tool roll on my bench, open.

    I have a couple of ways. I keep most of my chisels in a wall mounted rack. This is about an arm's reach to the side of my bench. The rack design is from Chris Becksvoort's tool cabinet. Easy to make. Only bad thing is if you add or delete chisels, you have to redo it, if you're as OCD as me about having them in order.

    Then I keep a set of chisels in a box, which comes out of a drawer and sits on the bench when in use. This is handy and portable, I like it a lot.

    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
