Toolcase Part 7
I have changed the layout since the last post, because the chisel holder ended up taking up more space than planned. The chisel rack is a piece of walnut 1" x 3/4" x 8". The holders are each 3/4" apart. For the Japanese chisels, the slots have a bevel only on the top, back. This keeps the chisels from falling out the front. I also did this same strategy for the long 1/4" chisel. For the long 1/2" chisel, I cut out space for the ferule, and the bottom. I then used a countersink bit to allow the flange of the chisel rest in it. This also makes the chisel not fall out. For the rabbet plane, just a piece of wood in the shape of an "L". For the bevel-up plane, I cut out two small pieces that hold the top of the handle securely.
