A Chisel Cabinet

Organized tool storage can improve your work habits


Trying to find the right tool when you’re in the middle of a complicated project is not an efficient way to work. This author built a wall-mounted cabinet to house his chisels and details the construction elements in this article. It’s a shallow box with horizontal rails secured with sliding dovetails. The rails have holes to hold the chisels and gouges. Two doors echo the cabinet carcase and double the cabinet’s storage capacity.
