I am a recent convert, like many, to working out of a tool chest instead of hanging tools on racks, using shelves, etc… (here are some old posts about it http://pfollansbee.wordpress.com/tag/tool-chest/ )
but there’s still lots of tools hanging around. I put a chisel away today, and found yet another argument for using the tool chest.
So I know some of what I will do in the shop tomorrow.
Here is one of many boxes I made in the summer, when it was too hot for real woodworking. The blocks to separate the chisels were based on something I saw in the new edition of the Tool Chest of Benjamin Seaton. (this detail is in the old edition too, but I was only looking at the book because I had got the new edition…)
I got my copy of the Seaton book by joining the Tools & Trades Historical Society… http://www.taths.org.uk/ - it’s worth a shot if you haven’t already done so. But it might be you have to buy the book at this point…I don’t know. You gotta have it either way.
