Need a Tray for Some Chisels

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

so, back to the Dungeon Shop I go. Have a nice stash of chisels, nothing real fancy, but they need a better home. Already have a spot for the router bits

but I don't think it would work to hold chisels. Grabbed a pine board that was long enough to go in the Tool Chest as a tray. It was a might wide so I ripped it down the middle with the old Craftsman circular saw. There are just some things I will not do by hand, and ripping long boards with a handsaw is one of them. Got the two halves into the vise, to take care of any dippity-dos

I did both edges, too. That Wards #78 was next. Needed a rebate to house the bottom of the tray. Photo is a might fuzzy( again) but

There IS a rebate there. The wood was so smooth, it shone like a beacon. Then, hand sawed for some dados. needed one on each end, and one in the middle. I was going to rebate the bottom of the dividers, but the fights were starting. So, made the floor board the full length, instead. One dado was in some knotty grain, and broke out, screws for that end. Trial fits as i go

I WILL get YELLED at for having my "junk" on HER washer. The floor boards are two pieces. The old sycamore one there wasn't quite long enough, and had a bow at one end. Had a thin piece of QSWO available, just a might wide, and too long. Saw the end off, and used a jointer to get to the right width. Did find out something strange about this old oak

It makes little curly things, instead of long shavings. I did get the floor for the tray ready for a test fit

Just some screws, nails and glue. then come the fun parts, getting a way to set all them chisels in the tray. That will be...next time. Stay tuned.

Old fashioned processing, nails and glue, just like the colonists did Steve, cept they didn't have a washer and dryer for a work bench! I love it Steve, thanks for sharing.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
