See-Through Chisel Holder
Here’s a chisel rack that protects those sharp edges and allows me to see the right
chisel for the job at hand.
The rack is easy to customize for any size chisels.Glue a 1-in.-wide strip of
1/2-in.-thick wood across a plywood backer board.Next, arrange your chisels
across the 1-in. strip in whatever order you prefer.Add spacer blocks to fit the
width of each chisel blade.A third 1/2-in. strip creates the chisel holes.A piece
of acrylic screwed to the last strip protects the chisel edges and your hands.
