How to Build Shop-Made Chisel Storage for Your Workshop Tool Bag

Shop-made chisel case A quickly put together wooden case will protect your chisels from cutting through bags (or skin) while they're not being used.

Storing chisels in my tool bag has been a real challenge. I tried keeping them in athletic socks and leather wraps, but getting them out was a hassle. Left unwrapped, the blades cut holes in the pocket of my bag and exposed the sharp edges. I solved the problem with these rigid cases, made from scrap. I cut a couple of shallow dadoes in a piece of pine a little longer than the length of the chisel blades, then glued a piece of hardboard over it to form a secure case. I rounded the bottom corners of the case to make it easier for them to slide into my bag pockets. Now my chisels are ready whenever I need them, and there’s no danger to the bag, the cutting edges or me.
